my friend got my 00 z28 into a ditch(not to good of a friend huh)it was towed out. i recently went to go for a spin even though it didnt have a bumperor hood cause of the crash, but anyways i checked my oil pressure and it seemed a little high on start up, like almost 80 psi. so i freaked out cause i dont remember what it normaly was. so my question to you guys is at around what psi should my car be at? o and its basically stock. thanks for hearing me out.

What wight oil are you running? How long does it stay at 80? what is it at idle?

what psi does your ss usually run at start up and warm sunsetorange?

Im running RP 5w 30 and at cold start i would say right around 60 psi then drops to about 40 psi at idle..
I would highly doubt running into a fence would have any chance of tearing up anything internal on the engine..

Your oil pressure is spot on. Nothing to worry about. On a side note is your friend paying for the damage?

Your oil pressure is normal. Your real concern should be about why your car wound up in the ditch.

to the OP: i agree it would take more than a fence to hurt your engine. hell, i got rearended awhile back and wash pushed into a trailor hitch on a jeep. only damage was cosmetic(hood and front bumper). frame and all that good stuff was solid as a rock.
