    ls6 valley plate upgrade

    Hi everyone I just got done installing a ls6 valley plate in my 2002 Camaro along with ported heads. But now my oil pressure has dropped down to about 30-35 at idle and only goes up to about 45 when I floor it. Do any of you have any ideas what has happened, bad oil pump maybe?

    Are you sure you didnt damage the oil pressure sender when removing or installing the intake?

    I just did the same and have the same pressure as before.

    Did you make sure you plug and cap both valve covers?


    Are you using a catch can or did you keep the pcv valve?

    No catch can i changed the pcv valve when i changed the plate. I pluged up the back hole on the drive side in the far back, and the one on hte pasanger side wiht the cap that came with the new valley plate. I also changed the oil sender when i did all this as well.

    Better oil control and you get less oil in the intake/etc
    I like work. It fascinates me. I can sit and look at it for hours.
