I've recently installed an oil pressure gauge and I was wondering what values people are getting. I'm just curious so I can compare them to my own.

@ startup -> about 75psi

Idle at temperature -> 15-20psi

Driving -> 45 - 55 psi, depending on RPM

Mine sits right in with the first few posters. Your numbers look fine. Exact numbers will vary based on type/weight of oil used, type of filter used, how old the oil and filter are, and many other factors.

My oil pressure at idle is now stead at around 15psi. this is with stock oil and a stock filter. Just wondering if there is anything wrong with the oil pressure that low at idle.

Once the car is moving the pressure tops out at 55-60 psi just like before.

yeah, that's about what i'm getting with my oil pressure gauge as well... things look good to me (or at least a few of us have the same results so that's a good thing!)
