proper oil pressure

What is the proper warm and cold idling pressures in the LPOP? I've done research and havent really found solid numbers to verify my readings, anyone wanna chime in?

Im seeing

20ish PSI warm idle

90ish PSi cold idle

60ish PSI cruising

Re: proper oil pressure

90 psi is really high even cold... I would expect to see about 70-75psi cold. Otherwise I have my warning lights set to come on at 20psi. Rarely comes on.
