I would. No filter change. TC and pan drain with extended drip time. Maybe drip overnight? Beyond that I wouldn't worry about the little bit of ATF +4 left in the recesses of the transmission.

just out of interest..where did you get the new, un-drilled plate?..i have a drilled one and want a un drilled spare .
