    My 350HO has always ran the oil pressure a little high (60 psi) The gauge is accurate oil to proper level and viscosity (Mobil 1 10w30) Most of my other engines run 45 PSI Anyone else have high crate oil pressures?

    mine was high the 1st 100 miles but now i think it is to low around 30, and sometimes as low as 15 when dropping to an idle

    It needs a bigger motor.
    what's in it now?
    doen't matter it NEEDS A BIGGER MOTOR

    The 350HO 300hp crate that I bought almost 4 years ago ran 50psi with 10w40 after it warmed up. I ran that engine just 20k before I bought the 383 and it ran about 50-52psi. My present 427 runs about 55psi but it's barely broke in. Less than 1000 miles on it.
