What does your opil pressure run at?

I wonder if my car is being normal, when the car is hot & idling it runs 30 psi, right on the middle of the gauge, just about any other time when cruising or when cold idling the psi gauge is pegged at 70 psi, it never seems to be in between 30 & 70..

is yours the same way?

2012 1LS Silver Ice - Mods - SS Strut Brace, RX Catch Can, BBK CAI, TRS Bi-Xenon HID's, Blackout Grill, RX65 Radar Detector, 700watt 4 Channel Amp with Kicker Speakers, 4Pack Gauges Added, 30% tint. Baer Drilled Rotors & pads, 20" American Racing. Awesome car.

kewl, though it might have something to do with me running lucas, first time I ran lucas in my old 3.8 Camaro I noticed the oil pressue was about 10 psi higher on average, but that car only used 4 quarts I think, so 25% lucas. only 1/6th with these cars.

Lucas is good stuff, been using it for years in diesel engines in my tractors at the ranch.
