well i dont know what pressure is like at idle because since it is break-in i tried not to let it idle. took it too about 2500 rpm and pressure was about 80 lbs. only reason i blipped it too 4000 was to see if the bypass would kick on and if the pressure would keep rising. really thinking i should probably drop the pan and look at the pump. what should i look for when i pull it apart so i know if its the spring of whatever is wrong.
