Default Overfilling a M5OD-R1HD

Is their any benefit or disadvantage to overfilling an M5OD-R1HD?

It will leak fluid EVERYWHERE when it is warmed up, fill to factory spec, and leave it! Otherwise there really isn't any benefit. Now if you have added things like an aftermarket trans cooler, remember to add the extra amount needed to fill the cooler as well.
