Default may have overfilled Manual Transmission?

I swapped out my manual transmission fluid for Redline MT-90. I know that the user manual for the speed 3 says that the transmission takes about 2.6 quarts of fluid, so I bought 3 quarts of the Redline. Everything went fine, but i had read online and seen online countless times that you're supposed to fill up the transmission through the fill hole until it starts to overflow. First two quarts, no problem. I get to almost all of the bottle gone on the third quart, and it never overflowed through the fill hole. I was really confused, but I figured i probably shouldn't put in anymore despite it not overflowing, so I put the fill bolt back on. I'm now conflicted because I know that overfilling a manual transmission can cause damage, but I've ALSO read that you need to keep filling it until it overflows. So what do I do? I took it out for a drive, everything seems fine other than the LSD whine that comes with switching to the Redline.

Yes, I put the Redline in the correct hole. I didn't put tranny fluid in my engine or otherwise. And yes, the drain plug was on before I put in the new fluid. Thank you!

I imagine that as long as you put the correct amount in, and maybe a tiny bit extra, you should be good.

Was the car on a incline or did you have it level when you were filling it up?

The only way to fix that is to fill your mouth with tranny fluid and release it into the tranny with a straw until it overflows.
Take it from me. I am orange so I am an expert at this.

Bro fill that shit up till it overflows. Nothing else to it. You will not blow the gear box to smithereens if you overfill it a little.

Fill that tranny up like you're feeding those fat bitches from those A&E shows until you get a trickle on the ground

Actually just did my MTF today.

I used a level on the bottom of the oil pan and my jack to get it (almost) perfectly flat. It took ~2.7 before it started to leak out. I still have the 3rd bottle so I guess I could go check tomorrow how much exactly I put in.
