Planning to change 4AT transmission fluid, what do I need?

I want to change the transmission fluid on my 2005 AT RX-8 to Royal Purple ATF and the differential fluid as well. How many quarts will I need to buy. Are there any special parts/tools I need to get? Is the procedure the same as the manual transmission cars (DIY: Transmission and Differential fluid replacement)?

I flush mine out with Redline ATF where I work. Used about 12qts.
Thought about dropping my pan but the torque converter & lines would'nt drain out so opted for the flush.

I use Redline too. It takes a lot to replace all the ATF, about 12 quarts is right. If you only do/get 4 or 5 quarts than you have not done a complete drain and replacement.
