    Mine varies as well. The stock guages are not that accurate. You could install an aftermarket one to verify that the pressure is where it should be. At an idle it will be lower than when driving.

    i dont see a problem. under load oil pressure increase, and at idle will drop/fluxuate some. as long as its nothing drastic or sudden (say from 55-20), i wouldn't worry.
