    I saw someone awhile ago post that they was getting 75psi on the sho motor. It's a thread somewhere about oil pumps failing and the oil light coming on. Think oil light comes on under 18psi oil pressure.

    Well yea ill hit 75psi on a "cold" motor. By cold i mean brought up to operating temp then hammer down and easily 75psi. When i said 55-65psi i meant engine and oil at full operation temp.

    steved - What are you typically seeing at idle, verses on throttle?
