5 quartz is correct. Buy 6 though because you might need to top off. Prelude burns a lot of oil.

thanks man and thats good to know cause i did not know they burned a lot...is that a normal condition or do you mean if the engine is running bad cause mine is a+ and all major and basic engine parts have been replaced(t-belt and all others, water pump, cam seals, balancer seal ect.)
