    The oil perssure should not go below 45psi. My 02 SS starts at almost 80psi and when it gets hot and at idle it will go to just below 50psi. 0psi is not good, it sounds like a bearing clearence may be off.

    do not run it until you get the oil pressure problem figured out. The first thing that comes to mind is the o-ring on the oil pump pick up tube. Are you positive you didn't pinch or nick that o-ring?
