oil pump pressure,

How can I check my oil pump pressure to make sure its putting out the correct pressure. Been reading lately about pump pressure and make sure its working correctly.

Re: oil pump pressure,

Which pump?

To check the HPOP you'll need a hydraulic pressure gauge and then screw it into one of the unused ports on the head. The gauge should be at leat 4k psi, 6k would be good.

To check your lube oil pressure get a low pressure gauge, around 80-100psi, and screw that into either the aux port above the oil filter or screw it into the lowest most rear port on the left side of the engine which reads main gallery pressure.
