Transmission fluid change

I am trying to estimate how many quarts of trans fluid to purchase.

1. I am switching to Amsoil Universal ATF since it is Nissan D, J & k
compatible.
2. I want to do a full atf exchange so I will be disconnecting I believe the lower trans oil cooler line and adding and new atf through the charge tube while draining from the trans oil cooler line until I see new fluid start to drain. While the engine is running.
3. I also want to take toe transmission pan off to clean and inspect which will drain about 5 qts.

If I drop trans oil pan first and lose approx. 5 qts, then add approx. 5 qts new oil, then start the exchange as stated above, should I consider exchange complete at first sign of new atf draining from cooler line? Or wait to see if I notice it changing back to old atf and then back to new again due to adding approx. 5 qts of new?

I hope this makes sense to someone.

Drop the pan and clean it first.

Has anyone done a fluid exchange at home? I have see the machines they use at the shops, but is there a good method for doing this in a home garage?

Thanks.
