The 86 300-6, 302 V8, 351W V8, and BB460 V8 all called for a 6 quart capacity.

5 quarts puts my 86 302 up to the top safe mark on my dipstick, but I've been told to add 6 anyways.

If you notice, there is a circle on up the dip stick. That's where 6 quarts put it. I don't know the definite answer, but I put 6 quarts in mine and that puts it to the small circle on the dipstick. Let me know if yours is the same.
