Hom many quarts for 3.4L oil change?

I just changed my oil at 31470 miles to Mobil 1, and using the stock Toyota Filter it took the full box of 6 quarts, and it reads 1/2 way between the dipstick hash marks.

Just wondering if ya'll put in the same amount.

Also, when I was taking off the flap behind the left driver tire to take off the oil filter, I broke one of the plastic clips that holds the flap on. OOPS! Anyone have a part number so I can get a new one?

I also ordered the Amsoil air filter to go with my recently completed deckplate mod. I am sooo looking forward to popping that baby in!

Yea, they have a pretty good capacity. If you do some searching, you will find that there are folks on this board that go a looooong time between oil changes. I have heard people say that they have gone 12,000 miles on synthetic. Someone on here (Gadget, I think) has a remote filtering system that allows ridunkulous oil change intervals.
