    oil pressure reading pic

    Sup gentlemen,
    hey here's a pic of me idling and driving with a or the rpm gauge at 2k. Does this read really high this is after I've driven about a 1/2 hour too in both pics. I mean idk if it is or not bc i've read that are motors are good till it hits 60 psi all theway down to 25 psi but mine is always right here is this too high of a psi?? Also when I really get on it damn reads near almost 80psi.
    The sound of your piss hitting the urinal.......yea it sounds feminine!

    Our oil guage is good for knowing there's pressure and that's about it..

    Very inaccurate to say the least and should'nt really be used for any degree of sertainty..

    I did an after market gauge test @ my sender port and found I had plenty of needle sweep on the guage but the dash guage stayed relatively the same...

    Just my .02

    What viscosity of oil you got in there? What oil filter?

    Does'nt matter the guage is a known junk piece in f-body..

    It will give the same readings no matter what oil you run..

    New sending units have no effect either..

    Best bet is to get an after market guage if these's any hope of actually getting an accurate reading..
