    Welcome to the site and congrats on the new purchase. Any good quality synthetic oil should do you just fine (not royal purple), just be sure you keep up on the oil changes and watch the oil level regularly. Give the entire car a good lookover. I suggest plugs, wires, fuel filter, air filter, and it can't hurt to pick up some maf cleaner and clean the maf sensor as well.

    That imo really depends on the maintenance that was done to the trans. Dropping the pan with new fluid and filter should be ok though. As for the oil, any dex/merc atf should be fine. I'd keep away from synthetic myself for the trans.
