Default random dip stick question

Hybrid build (not important). What is important is that I am using a 2007 STi oil pan, and reusing the 2.0 dip stick and dip stick tube. Being that this is a brand new engine, and not having any oil in it, can I put a full 5 quarts in and mark the dip stick for the new "full" line? My thinking is this: on normal oil changes, my current motor usually took a hair under 5 quarts to get to the filled line while warm. So, considering the amount of oil left in the passageways/head/filter..., I'd say a good 5 to 5.5 quarts total. If I drop 5 quarts in the pan, mark the stick with the new line, I should be good to use that line.
Am I correct? (I am trying to find a STi stick and tube without buying new, but if none surface before Friday, I'm finishing the assembly)

Yes, you can do that

The difference between the OEM stated 2.5L oil capacity and the 5 quarts you want to use is 0.2 quarts.

The dipstick and dipstick tube are not that expensive
