Yes I do have the correct dipstick. I was checking the level while it was running in park when I only had the first 6 quarts in it. It still read low so I put a bit more in. I wasn't sure how much to put in to make the level go up on the dipstick, so I guess I should have went a little bit at a time.

I let it sit a full day now hoping to let the fluid return to its normal state. If I did aerate it, is there any chance that I damaged the pump? That's my biggest worry right now.

It's about 30 degrees out tomorrow, so if I do try it out, I'll have to stuff something in my headers when I'm done. I read up on bent valves due to cold weather with open headers. Hope I didn't damage anything. Thanks fellas.
