Well as for te stock oil pressure gauge its a "Guess Gauge". It not exact in pressure it just a rough estimate... Mine is roughlt 35 PSI at idle warm and about 45 PSI at 2K RPM's...

Now if I flip my ECT foolr on my high idle switches. The ECT temp falls to 123*F and the oil pressure starts climing even though the RPM's is still 850 RPM's... So I know the stock gauge is basically junk...
