If it is good and hot, I’m lucky to get 20 lbs at idle.  


the car is relatively new to me, so I don’t know its full history, but the engine was allegedly done by the prior owner.

Just an informal survey:

For those of you with BJ8's ( the later design of oil pump) - what would your oil pressure be idling in traffic, once it's good and warm?

It's supposed to be about 25. When hot I get more like 20, even though the upper revs are over 50.
