A brand new build vs just an oil change, add in factors like pan size, convertor size, cooler size, etc.

I keep 4 gallons on hand for a new build. Typically a transmission will take 14 quarts (I have a massive cooler).
If it was me in your situation I'd fill the convertor as you did and put in 6-8 quarts, fire it up and top off as needed.
It's good to start small, just an oil change leaves a lot of fluid in the transmission.

Good luck

Well , best idea would be , verify where the "FULL" mark is on the dipstick , needs to be just above the pan rail or at about the level where the o'ring in on the dipstick tube .
Then fill to the full marks at warm operating temp, motor running. Any other figure anyone tells you for an amount is a guess at best

Yup, that is why no one really wanted to answer.... it's pretty much impossible to have an exact number.
