I'm not saying that more than this is going to be a problem, I'm just saying that is all that is required for proper operation. In a street car that sees many miles of use and ware you have to start with a higher pressure because when things wear it will eventually get lower. If you start out on the edge when new, you would need freshining up after maybe 10,000 miles. On another note I have seen dyno tests that show that if you run your oil level at the bottom of the acceptable range versus at the most full of the acceptable range, you can see a 7-10 hp increase. How is that for a free tenth in a pinch!?
