No you don't need to change trans fluid. If anything, have a shop flush it and put royal purple in at that point

Make sure you have an alignment tool. Take your time, torque everything and I like to use loctite on clutch stuff as Ive seen bolts that were torqued back out. Ask questions if you have any.

Also make sure you dont have bad hot spots on the flywheel as if it does Id have my foywheel checked to make sure its still good.

I thought trans fluid on the 5 speeds was just brake fluid?
