How much coolant left after EGR delete?

Silly question guys but I can't find an answer. Going to tackle EGR/DPF delete on Friday. Went with the Sinister EGR delete kit, seems like nice quality. I read the instructions and noticed the first step is draining about 5 gallons of coolant. Just wondering how much, if any, coolant will be left over once I'm finished and refill the coolant? Are we talking gallons, or just a few drops? Thanks for your help, I want to make sure I get everything right the first time.

Doubt there is info on the volume of coolant the EGR takes. Just fill it up, drive it for a day, and check cold the next day. Top off as needed. No big deal.

That's pretty much what I planned on doing. My truck only has 6000 miles on it so I'm planning on reusing my coolant. Just wanted to get an idea in case I had 2 gallons left in the bucket so I know I'm not crazy

Fill it back up. Run it for 5 min, shut it off, check it. Likely have to add a bit. Then drive as normal and check the next morning again with the engine cold

My truck has 20k miles and I think I'll just put new fluid in. Do our trucks take a certain kind of coolant?

How much coolant came out? I have two, five gallon buckets on standby. Would I need more?
