If you put in too much oil the crank will whip it up into a foam which could keep your oil pump from sucking it up and if the foam gets into the hydraulic lifters it can make them collapse. Not Good!:-X23
If you put 5 in mine, the dipstick will say full until you start it and the oil goes into the filter. So i put some in the filter and put a total of 6 in the engine and it reads pretttty close to full.

The newest addition to the Ford family is a 99' Mustang GT 4.6L
I always put the entire 6 quarts in even though it then reads about 1/2 quart over the top of the full mark. I figure the oil is cooling the lower end so as long as it is not foaming the little extra won't hurt.
