Pentosin super dot 4 brake fluid for g37x q40

I'm doing a stock to akebono brake upgrade and grabbed the pentosin super dot 4 for brake fluid. It seems to be the highest quality/performance fluid available on the shelf at AutoZone.
It was that or the standard prestone dot 3.
It's for a 2015 q40 awd
Manual specs Nissan heavy duty dot 3 or equivalent
Which is quite an open statement.

I have made the best choice?

There will be differing opinions, but your choice will exceed OEM fluid performance, so yes, you made a good choice IMO.

I used this in my brakes few years ago. After a thorough bleeding/flush, I found the pedal mushier than usual. I never had any leaks and use a powerbleeder to push new fluid through. It bothered me enough that I changed to something else. Using prestone dot 4 now in both reservoirs.
