Oil Pressure Update

I installed a gauge at the oil galley to verify the dash gauge accuracy. Well, the dash gauge reads low. The gauge I used is off my AC Freon charging gauge set so I suspect that it is accurate. The oil is Rotella-T1 30WT mono-grade w/ZDDP additive.

 Idle, operating temperature = 13 lbs

At 1,500-2,000 RPM (estimate) = 50lbs
