Is this with vehicle warmed up or cold start?

90 - 100 psi of pressure is right for a VE, I don't think it should be any different for a VE pump on a DE block.

I saw 25psi at idle and redline saw my oil pressure gauge peg to 100.. This is with POS Autometer gauges...

I'll let you know what it does on Greddy gauges as they use bar instead of psi so the range reading is higher and I can give you a more accurate number...

Cheers-
Erich

i get 90 psi on cold start up and when its warm its about 20 psi . and up to 130 at redline. i belive this could be the reason for my brand new front main seal to be leaking already. but other than that i would think the more the merrier.

front main seal does not see oil pressure, it should have nothing to do with it leaking. Most likely it was not installed correctly.
