I just put the m50 in my e30. I have the e34 oil pan and I do not know how much oil I need to put in there, nor do I have a manual...

So how much do i need>?

when u drain your oil, undo your drain plug and tehn undo your oil filter housing bolt and that will alow all the oil to drain to the pan and out. dont have put 2 quarts in through the housing... just undo the oil filler cap and pour away.

I was probably an idiot when I put 8.5 qts in. I have yet to recieve my 525 dipstick tube and all and I guess the e36 one reads incorrectly, anyone verify that?

Might the amougn of oil, being too high that is, cause the pressure to stay low for a second at startup?
