lol. All good. My dad types in all caps. Heck, he even write in all caps.

And you should add 15 to a stock 6.0l. So you should need 16 with the bypass (4 gallons of oil) then you should have spot on amount.
Synthetic in a 6.0 is one of the best things to do for it. Rotella is good, I use Valvoline.
Use synthetic as long as you can afford it

I could be way off base here, but I have a friend who installed the Bullet Proof external cooler about a year ago. I am pretty certain he said this pushed the oil capacity to 20 quarts. I don't know much about the system, but what he said makes sense to me. You now have to fill that external cooler & gigantic filter with oil.

Hopefully somebody who has the system will chime in and know the answer. If not, I would find a way to measure what comes out when you drain it so you will know how much to put back in. Then check the oil religiously for a little while to make sure your level is correct.

Not all the old oil is going to drain out of the cooler. So no, you don't have to compensate for that unless you completely purge the system.
One extra quart is for the filter.

Got it done- the answer to this thread is--
18 quarts exactly
Filled the big filter- cooler and system to the top of the stick!!
Bulletproof claimed 21
That must be for a dry motor!!

18 is perfect!
Let drain for 30 minutes
Plug the pan
Untwist the massive filter
Not a drop spills!!!!
Fill filter
Pour in the motor the remaining ammount to the 18 quart capacity
Start engine
Shut off
Wait 5 min
Check oil level
Will be right at the top of the cross marks on the dipstick
