The stock oil gauges suck. They readings mean nothing (no more acurate than an idoit light).

So first off get a aftermarket gauge (mechanical prefered). It should read something like 45psi at idle and up to 65psi as rpms increase.

If your still showing low pressure then do the following:
1. Heavier oil
2. High volume oil pump
3. Rebuild motor
