This is from the factory service manual which I have a link to in a sticky post at the top of this forum:

INSTALLATION
1. ADJUST ADJUST COMPRESSOR OIL
(a) When replacing the compressor and magnetic
clutch with a new one, gradually discharge the
refrigerant gas from the service valve, and drain the
following amount of oil from the new compressor
and magnetic clutch before installation.
Standard:
(Oil capacity inside the new compressor and
magnetic clutch: 130 + 15 cc (4.6 + 0.51 fl.oz.) )
-(Remaining oil amount in the removed
compressor and magnetic clutch) = (Oil
amount to be removed from the new
compressor when replacing)
NOTICE:
• When checking the compressor oil level,
observe the precautions on the cooler
removal/installation.
• If a new compressor and magnetic clutch is
installed without removing some oil
remaining in the pipes of the vehicle, the oil
amount will be too large. This prevents heat
exchange in the refrigerant cycle and causes
refrigerant failure.
• If the volume of oil remaining in the removed
compressor and magnetic clutch is too small,
check for oil leakage.
• Be sure to use ND-OIL 8 or equivalent for
compressor oil.

Thank you for quick answer.
Is there a number for total system capacity in the service manual? I read some where that only 50% of the oil goes to compressor and rest will stay in the other parts of system.

So if I flushed all the oil from the system, I should put 5.01 oz back into the system? I am not replacing the compressor or the dryer.
