Default Safe to modify my car with old tranny?

I recently did a tranny change, and the fact that it still had the rubber gasket on it and the fluid was getting dark leads me to believe that this was the first time this has been done to the car. I didnt really find any metal shavings in the pan or on the magnet, just a few. would it be safe to still modify the car. I mainly want to see if it is safe to put my nitrous on it. by the way the car has 106k on it. thanx
