First there is no Mercon III it is just Mercon.

I would not leave it in there. You can put Mercon V in a Mercon rated tranny but you should not do the opposite.

You could add a friction modifier if you don't want to change it.

The difference is the material the clutches are made off. The newer Mercon V rated trannys use Kevlar material.
