    Oil Pressure Readings

    Hey guys, so lately I have been noticing that my oil pressure readings have been a little different. Usually I run about 80 psi with load and about 20 psi at idle with Castrol 0W-30. Today though the motor got pushed kinda hard and when I stopped the oil reading was hovering at 10 psi at idle, and about 68 psi on load. Before I pushed it, I made sure to check the oil, oil was good. The oil took about 5 minutes of normal driving to get back up to 80 psi on load. Just seeing if this is something to worry about...

    Thanks

    Where's your sensor? Do you have an oil temp gauge?
