About 6-7 qt and yes. The ammount will vary with size of filter, mounting angle etc.

On a manual paragon, I remove a bolt from one lower (aft) corner of the transmission cover and insert the pump tube through the bolt hole until it hits the bottom of the trans case, and pump. Or you can take the whole cover off with a few more bolts and visualize the whole process.
