What is the total oil capacity of a 2.5 V6's engine?

As per title, I would like to know my engines total oil capactity. I burst my sump today so I might as well do an oil filter change while I'm fixing it. I have just over 6 litres of oil but I'm not sure that's enough. The page below states the capacity is only 5.5 litres but I suspect it may be more

Alfa Romeo 156 Handbook

Thanks in advance

p.s The car was switched off as soon as I heard the bang (definitly no engine damage because it was a fairly slow leak), I'll get a picture of the car after it beld to death when I remove the sump

6 litres will be fine, put in 5 and a half, let it settle and check the dipstick.
