    come on now, get on it!!!

    I know you've see a new engine build put on an engine dyno before. They make sure there are no leaks, run it up gradually.
    Then dyno the hell out of it!

    It's gonna break or it ain't, lol.

    I thought general rule of thumb was 10 psi oil pressure for every 1000RPM engine speed.

    My 01 ran 48 at idle and would run up to 80 at WOT. That sounds normal..
