Did an oil change the other day and could not find the oil capacity for an 03 Z, soes anyone know the recommended amount?

Using the dipstick I put in about 5 quarts w/ filter change.

Funny thing is I only drained about 2.5 quarts from the car

That's about right for oil capacity, but 2.5 quarts is not so good. Seen any oil spots under your car lately?
