I DO NOT recommend this (no matter whos baffle you use). In fact the ONLY time I've heard of overfilling the pan it was with endurance cars that knew they were going to loose over a quart during the coarse of a race.
So, I add 6qts when I do an oil change with my KB pan. From reading this I'm adding to much or are you just talking about 6qts just in the sump. Can't really tell if it is high from the dipstick as I have the 2litre one still and reads way high. Just want to get level correct before I go and scribe my DS.
