Alright kids..



Im seeing an oil pressure of AT MAX 70 psi under wide open throttle is that good or low? or what?



At idle im seeing bout 20 psi, and the second my tach reaches 1k or more its in between the 30 and the 60 for most of my daily driving.....



Is this low? good?



and how can i do the shim the e-shaft?





anyways, anything you guys can pitch at will probbably be useful...

Thats about (if not exact) how my N/A runs. At idle, almost 30 psi, WOT, runnin' 60-70 psi. Its about as normal as it gets; providing no internals have been changed.

I dont think there is a problem, i read a long time ago that anything under 30 at idle was generally bad....









But the motor seems fine....
