put a lil over 5 in and always have an extra quart laying around, as you will most likely need to add some in between oil changes

10 Qts of 5W 3W just like the engine calls for plus 10oz. of Marvel Mystery Oil like the good mechanics call for. Also add 10oz of Marvel oil to every 10 gals. of gas.

I let my engine drip for a good half hour when I change the oil. I'll put in six full quarts and be one half of a quart above the full line, which is perfectly fine. Since I burn/leak a little oil I usually fill it up to there when I check and top-off the crankcase.

You can over fill it in which case it will get less lubricated

the oil can foam so instead of oil you get oil/air which will cause less lubrication than you need.

6 is a bit much just keep it at the line and fill as needed.

Right, the oil can foam-up if the crankcase is too full. However, one half quart over is not too much oil. What would happen if it were filled with enough oil is that the crank itself would 'froth' up the oil, causing bubbles to form. The bubbles, when pulled through the oil pump, create many very small explosions, wearing away the metal surfaces of the oil pump itself. It is called 'cavitating'. This, would then cause poor lubrication, and possible engine failure.

I've been topping off 1/2 quart above the full line for 30k miles now. As well, I've been running a magnetic oil drain plug. I do all of my own oil changes and have not seen excessive metal wear on the magnet drain plug.

I'm also not the only one who does this; it's been discussed before and others over-fill as well.
