The main reason to change transmission fluid is to remove contaminants. That need won't change with full synthetic unless you install additional filtration.

Regular Mercon V works well enough for the recommended change interval so full syn Mercon V is really going to be a waste of money.

^^^^^ Agreed. I have been using Wallmart Supertech Merc V for years with zero trans issues. I change it every 25 K to 30 K miles. I also have aftermarket trans coolers on my auto trans cars.
