Default How much tranny fluid does 4L60e hold?

Dont have my manual anymore. I want to do a drain and refill, as well as replace the tranny filter. How much will I need. Should I go synthetic? I have 70K miles and about 425 crank HP.

04 service manual for the 4l60-4l65-E says 5 quarts for pan removal. Complete flush, including converter is approx. 12 quarts.
