2014 GT500 Coupe SGM " 1 of 1 "
My 14 seems to follow the supplement listed oil capacity pretty closely, so @ this point, no need to add extra lube..
Did you prefill the filter?I thought I'd update my findings. Just to recap, I have a 13-14 oil pan on a 5.8 in my 2012 GT500. We know the 13-14 has a bigger oil pan and the part numbers for the dip stick tubes remains unchanged for 07-14, with a different part no. for the dipstick on the 13-14. I changed the oil a week ago and put 8 qts. in it. The car has not moved, not started and is sitting level. I just looked at the dip stick and the oil level is just over the upper hole in the dip stick.

Much where @nickf2005's stick is showing in post no, 8. Since the spec for the 5.8 is 8.5 qts. and the dip stick is a different part number, it does appear Ford raised the oil level on the 13-14 over what it used in the 5.4 and accounts for the add'l quart of oil the 07-12 is now showing as the spec. I'll order the updated dipstick and compare the two.
My experience is anything that is only 1/4" or less ABOVE the top hole / hashmark is just fine and won't do any damage. I always ran a full 7 quarts in my 2008 without any problems, and it showed just a hair above the top mark. Same with my Toyota, Nissan, and the old van ... all 12 - 20 years old and running smooth.
