Before installing my supercharger and running 20 weight oil I would see oil pressure on a hot engine scary low. 220 degree oil temp, 3 lbs oil pressure at idle.
When getting tuned for the supercharger I had my tuner raise my idle RPM from 750 to 950. Now my oil pressure never drops below 20 psi at idle.
This is with 5-30 oil.

Wow yours really dipped to 3lbs warm? Shit mine only dips to about 8lbs at idle, runs about 120-125 cold and 40-60 psi under normal driving conditions warmed up.

Toyota specs call for 7 psi @ 172 degrees at idle. So you know oil pressure will go lower as engine warms up.

Does anyone know if it's normal for for oil pressure gauge needle to flutter +- 1-2 psi during highway cruising or right after off throttle? I recently installed a Defi gauge with pressure sender attached to top of block by AC unit. Doesn't seem to be leaking or anything.
This is first time using an oil pressure gauge.

In regards to oil pressure I'm running 0w20 with pressures around or slightly below 10psi at around 185 F and around 40-47psi highway at 190F.
