Put in Royal Purple Oil after 838 Miles

I changed the oil out at 838 b/c we were heading on a trip to Houston the next day. I read somewhere that the LS3 took 8.9 Quarts of oil so I just poured in 9.0 Quarts. Now I read in the manual that the capacity is 8.0 Quarts. Did I cause a problem? Is it ok with a whole extra quart in there?

I was in the car driving back from Houston when I noticed it in the owners manual. The car runs fine, the Oil Press. and Temp are at there normal levels.
