When you're ready to fire the motor, pour 7 quarts into it. Fire the motor and run it in for whatever period of time you will use. Shut the motor down, pull the dipstick, wipe it clean, plunge it back in and pull it out. Where the oil level is on the dipstick is where you will want to make a mark across the stick with the edge of a file. Clean the stick. Drain two quarts of oil out of the pan and make another mark on the stick. Clean the stick. Now, you have a full and a 2-qts low mark on your stick and life is good.

No no. im refering to the pickup tube depth. Im sure theres a proper depth in pan measurement right? I think this pickup is a different length to work with this specific oil pan. I will however do this to confirm or remark my dipstick aswell.
