View Full Version : Another oil pressure question...

Hey all, i know the oil pressure subject has been addressed a million times, but just getting a bit curious about the levels my E1 GTS is hitting.

When giving it all its got and redlining in 1st and 2nd gear, i notice the oil pressure goes all the way over the 5 point and wants to go off the clock, is this normal??

Idle it sits justt over 2.5 mark, im running full synthetic 5w-40...

about 6000rpm 2nd gear mine is on the 5 mark, oil I use is 10-40 so I'd say its normal, I would only worry bout high oil pressure if it stayed high but if its back to normal at idle should be fine...

Definitely sits normal at idle, but when getting close to redline in lower gears it seems like it wants to go off the clock
