Just answered this the other day. Read this thread and it will answer your questions, if you still have any let me know. If you are worried at all about warranty then use the fluid I posted. If you don't care about your warranty use amsoil.

Owners manual states 50k miles for spirited driving and 100k for the rest of us.

I chose to change trans around 50k despite not having spirited driving.

Or every 24 hours of track use. It's always best to go on the safer side of oils than pushing them past their limits.

Thanks did you have to use any teflon tape or sealant on the drain plug or did you just reinstall as is?

Reinstall it as-is, but make sure the washer is still in place.
