That sounds about spot on to me mate!

Holdens dont have super high oil pressure to start with, so there is no way to get too much pressure in them! haha.

Mine is anywhere between 40-60psi while driving around and idling... I haven't looked at the pressure when giving it a full boot full!

if i hold the revs at around 3000rpm, it sits on around 75-80psi.
do you think this is a bit high dennis?

sh*t! That's high! I don't think mine goes anywhere near that high! haha.

The rule of thumb is normally something like 10psi for every 1000rpm... So at 6000rpm, 60psi is enough etc...

80-90 sounds VERY high!
