low oil pressure warning/buzzer
Wanted to change the oil today, so I was out making sure it was warm. Did a bunch of WOT runs, and then was doing donuts and just playing when in one really sharp turn, it buzzed at me, and the "OIL" came on in the display. I let off, and it went into limp. then it came out of limp and it was fine. ran it around some more and no buzz, no word on the display.
changed the oil. Sucked it out. got only 3 quarts,(put 4 in on last change) and could get any more no way no how. Put 3 back in and put it back in the water. checked it, and it was at the bottom of the bend. added oil, and now its about 3/4 of the way up. Took it out and ran it WOT, did donuts jumps etc, and no buzz, no "OIL" on the display.
No leaks anywhere, not a drop of oil. Every time I've checked it its been in the middle of the bend. 38 hours on ski. 2006 RxT.
Can you uncover the pickup doing high speed donuts in both diorections, or the oil pressure sensor? Or is there something else I should look at?

Seems to be fine. I tested it today with a Mech gauge. 80+ psi cold idle. 35 psi hot idle, and 65-75 psi runing from 5000 up, which is what the book calls for. Letting off the throttle 100% from 7000 drops it to ~30 psi, but it goes to 35 and no alarm/words show up.
Oh yea, and it still turns 66.3 mph @ 8000
