    I just got my oil pressure gauge hooked up. At idle, I am running 60 lb/in^2. My car hasn't been tuned and is running a high idle, but I just wanted to make sure I am close to where it's supposed to be. Thanks.

    Cold @ 2K and 60lbs sounds good to me:)

    Ditto. And 40-45/lbs. hot at cruising speed is plenty.

    A cold idle at 900rpm 50psi is good.. 35 acceptable on older.

    At 3000rpm hot 50psi

    Id say your all good

    I suppose the type engine should have been noted.... Rock's engine a V6.
