    4.8qrts for the TT models.

    A quick google search reveals that the N/A models call for 4.5 qrts, about the same as the TTs.

    Some people just put the full 5 qrts in.

    I changed my oil today, put in 4 x one quart bottles of Redline 10W40, and have an extra one quart bottle on hand to top up as needed...

    if you're burning oil or some other "oil-eating" related issue.
    Those, who stand for nothing, will fall for anything.
    On the Internet you can be anything you want. It's strange that so many people choose to be stupid.

    I always put 5 quarts in and it was always to the full mark. Now I put 4.5 quarts, then add to the dipstick until it is at the full mark. I have seen it where they had cut away images of our engines and measured and it can easily fit 5 without even being close to the crank. So 5 is no prob and that is why a lot do 5 to be simple.

    But I would definitely, put a gallon in and then keep adding til full on the oil dipstick. But for sure it takes more than 4. The 4.8 stated above seems pretty spot on.

    92 Eagle Talon TSI AWD Auto = 10.61@127.8 (1.4 60ft)
    94 3000gt SL 8:1TT 5spd getrag = 11.87@123 (1.8 60ft)
    91 3000gt VR4 13gs = 11.61@115 (1.59 60ft)

    I almost always just dumped in 5 quarts. It was always right above the fill line.

    As per our manual 4 quarts w/o filter 4 1/2 with filter and 5 with a complete oil change with oil cooler disconnected and dumped. This is what Mitsubishi recommends. Remember that this is a dry motor specification so your probably going to get it to the full mark with somewhere between 4 to 4 1/2 with a filter change.
