Planning on brewing this beer today or tomorrow. Any major changes from original recipe that I should know about?

So there seem to be mixed opinions on whether to just add spices or to actually add pumpkin or pie mix. Anyone have a convincing argument either way?

I made it for the first time last weekend. I added the 60 oz of canned pumpkin (baked previously in the oven). I put it in the last 15 minutes of the boil in a paint strainer bag. It gave the beer a wonderful orange color, and even after 6 days fermenting, i can still smell some pumpkin aroma. It is a bit messy, and i would like to try it with real pumpkin sometime.

Sounds like it is awesome without the pumpkin too!

When adding the pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract at bottling, do you just add them to the bottling bucket or are you supposed to boil them with the priming sugar or something like that?

Add them at bottling/kegging time.

I add them right to the keg, then rack onto them. I'd suggest boiling up about 1/4 cup of water, then let it cool and add the spice once it reaches 180. The vanilla extract I use is literally just vodka with vanilla beans that have been soaking for a few years, so it is sterile by default.

Made this over the weekend. Some how I got the worst efficiency I have ever had and wound up with an OG of 1.074... My water calculations were off as well and I have 11.25 gallons of wort fermenting. None the less I'm still hoping it tastes as good as it smells...

Your water volume is the reason why your efficiency was so low. If you boiled that down to your 10 gallons, it would increase your OG by about 10%.

Yea I know I had a minor mishap in my calculations. I am going make it again soon. My fermentation however has been crazy so far with s04.
