I always change the filter every oil change regardless of what the manual states..
Mine takes 5 qts and it matters not whether it's hot or cold. Minimal difference on the stick immediately after driving or first cold morning. On my first change i tried 4.5 qts and it was well below the max (still safe though). On nearly all oil changes I never put the full amount in right away. I usually stop a half quart shy and top off on level ground.
