Default KS5W71C fluid overfill

Can't find anything on this transmission, only the 30. What is the capacity of this transmission with overfill?

You need to fill it to where it is full enough to flow out the fill hole. What most people do is lift the driver side a few inches to get a little extra into it. Dont fill it with much more than that. Or it will find a way to leak out your tail shaft seal and or the front input shaft seal.
