I have the same type, and my car is not modified.

Do you have links to people who have changed there oil post 100K and have had it fail on them? Id really like to change the fluid out, as Id assume that by this point its pretty worn down.

And the people who have changed their fluid at a high mileage has it failed on them immediately or was it something that failed on them after a period, possibly being that the failure had nothing to do with the transmission fluid change but was going to happen regardless of whether the fluid was changed or not.
