I've been running approximately 9 quarts in mine. See this thread for the reason why:
An interesting oil consumption observation
I run Brad Penn 20W-50. I'm a very observant owner, so I'm always under the engine lid (or under the engine itself) checking something, so I keep a close eye, but I typically keep my level at the very first (lower) line of the dipstick. My oil level gauge reads right at the top of the "red zone" mark. Just changed the oil about 600 miles ago and it hasn't used a drop...

EDIT: see my additional comments on post number 14 for clarification about the 9 quarts
