In my opinion, I would just wait to change the fluid and filter, it's not like you need the car right now, ya know? Get you're motor rebuilt then change the fluid, that way theres no chance something might happen while the tranny sits there fluidless.
Mercon V is the best choice. I just changed my fluid and filter in my 94, drained the TC and dropped the pan, and it took about 13 quarts to refill.
