Oil Capacity of 4.7 XK (6 quarts)

My manual clearly states the capacity for the 4.7 v8 JC to be 6 quarts. This is the second time I've changed oil and both times using 6 quarts the dipstick shows just over the half-way mark. Does anyone know the proper capacity?

Re: Oil Capacity of 4.7 JC

If it is within the hashmarks, it is the proper amount.

My 4.7 takes 6 quarts. Did you use a larger oil filter or something?

Re: Oil Capacity of 4.7 JC

I think the Oil Change Jockey didn't check the oil properly. I checked it once the engine had cooled and oil drained back down from filter and all and it's on the full level mark now as it should be at exactly 6 quarts.
