Default 200ci, how much oil?

Bickety bam. Question given, answer awaits.
200ci, it was bored out (not sure how much). How many quarts of oil should I run out and get?
I've been using 5 quarts, but someone said that was too much and now it has me all kinds of confused.

I have always used 4.5 quarts. If you change the filter with the oil change then 4.5 should be about right. After running the car with 4 quarts in it, to fill the filter, add the last 1/2 a quart until it comes up the the full line on the dip stick.

Same here, I use 4 1/2 quarts with the new oil filter.

I drove an I6 200 for years and years and it always took 4 quarts.

Whoever told you 5 quarts is all sorts of jacked up. So you trust this "fine individual" to rebuild your engine?

Unhappy reply-amount of oil in 67 Mustang 200 ci 6cylinder

Well, after days of reacerch and even calling Ford...which couldn't say for sure, the amout of Oil...But said they thought it was 5qts...So I called several mustang parts stores and had them measure new dipsticks, for 67 mustang 200ci...It measures 10" from the bottom of the bell to top of the full line and 11 1/2" to bottem of stick!!! Checked mine it was 10-10 1/8" from bottom of bell to top of full!!! So he was Wrong about 5qts in 67 200! Its reading about 1/8-1/4 inch above full line with total of 4.5qts...will likely drain about a half qt...then red stick!!! I did trust guy, he can Highly recommended...He worked on only 64-67 for 20 years...but don't think he has rebuilt, alot of 6cyclinders! Don't know if Ford has Misinformation? I only have 33k on a TOTAL Rebuild...and have had oil fould plugs, just blew/replace fuel pump and just changed oil, put 4.5qts in this time...but plan on draining about 1/2 qt., I not sure if permament damge to engine, after running 5qts for 1st 33k??? I hope this helps others , I know I'm frustrated over this!!! Right after Engine Rebuild, Mechanic who did the work...put 5qts in it, checked oil dipstick and it read like 3/4inch over fill line and told me my dipstick was wrong dipstick...said it takes 5qts!!! I plan on calling him tommorrow, but no sure what he can/or will do??? It cost like $3,700 to Rebuildand was planning on it Lasting atlest 200k...hope it not too late, permanent damage??? Cause, I'm in a TOUGH Financal Situation!!! Thanks!
