1996 7.3 low oil pressure and low on power

I just got my 7.3 on the road after a new trans and it has been running good but seems a little sluggish. And I know the injectors run off of oil pressure and the gauge on my dash is in the middle of the gauge but my dads runs at like 3/4 and seems to have a little more power. What I'm wondering if it's my oil pump on the crank? Or the hpop? Just did a oil change and filter. And also my fuel filter light will sometimes flash at idle. After long trips it seems but if I turn it off and back on it stays off? Any help would be appreciated. I know the motors just don't want to drop money in the wrong spot. Oh also it has a brand new fuel pump in
