6 quarts ain't that bad. That's how much my F150 ends up wanting. 5 in the pan, one in the filter.

I used to save that half quart for the next oil change to keep from buying a whole.

Ya but The balance shaft will be gone so it will have more crank case room plus the pan requires a 3/4 inch drop in the center section to clear the HO oil pump which will add another 2 quarts.

Removing the balance shaft won't alter the amount of oil the engine needs. Idunno where you guys are getting that idea.
