4.5Litres.

Better to put 4 in then run for 10secs (to fill the oil filter) then test it.

3L is for the small blocks as they only take 3.5L

mine takes between 4 and a half and 5 litres.

if you go to halfords, yes, halfords, there is a flip book like they have for headlight bulbs for oil levels and gearbox oil levels for pretty much all cars

oil filter should be primed first. 4.5litres for redtop. Would never fire up a red top with 3 litres for 10seconds, your asking for trouble. The min mark on the dipstick is 3.5 litres.
