    oil pressure numbers

    What pressure do the 4techs normally run at idle and high revs Im still having grief with a p x that every now and then during a race will go into limp mode and show oil on the dash, Have tried altering oil level, changing oil and filter and sensor but still no good. Has anyone had pressure relief valves give any problems??
    I want to test the prssure both hot and cold so need to know some numbers.

    Cheers

    Same as Jawz, around 50 on the low and 100 at the high end. I think the limp mode comes on around 18psi if that helps.
