Anyways I poured all three bottles in, fired it up and leak checked it. Closed the hood and did not bother checking the level. Checked it 2k miles later, it was a tick above full, just 1-2mm above the mark. 7 quarts is perfect depending on the oil filter you buy. Some vary in the amount they hold but not enough to make a difference realy.
Never considered that but read in these posts that the factory filter is tiny so if the replacement is of a larger size, then I could see where a few 100 ml's more might be required?
