    Is this normal?

    So ive always used Mobil 1 was using 5w30 till about a year ago, when i went to 10w30. Anyways, i switched to PP 10w30 yesterday, and im using the K&n oil filter, "longer one made for truck" i think p#2006. That makes it hold 6 qrts fine..

    But the question is my oil pressure! I would say a cold start is around 60-65, normal get up and go is 65-70, and WOT is almost 80! The car runs great! I ran a 6.96 last week in the 1/8th, so i know its running good. I dont hear any sounds either. Mods are 160* Stat, 3000 stall, built trans. LT's, Cutout, just that kind of stuff. It sees a small shot of n20 some times..

    But yea, am i ok? Should i go back to 5w30? Thanks.

    I run the same exact oil weight and brand with that same filter, but a diff brand.

    Sounds right to me.

    I run Mobil 1 as well, mostly stock and my pressure spikes when I'm at high RPM's. I see it commonly on GM's.

    Oil pump runs off the engine so Higher RPM = Higher pressure...
