6.5 quarts of oil in 03 GT?

6 quarts of oil per manual puts oil level about half quart below full. Is this the same for anyone else?

6 quarts always puts me low. Right around 6.5 is where it reads full for me.

Go buy another 2 quarts and keep filling until you read full. Pretty easy solution here, bro.
It's more than likely 6.5.

my 03 4v motor reads off (not accurate) so be careful. On mine you have to run more than the required 6 qts to get it to read what you the fill line is~ dont over fill! go by what the book recomends.

As far 4v guys in the 03/04 cobra the oil pan can run more than 6 (up to 9 they say... but I have ran 6-7)
