Oil pressure prob. (unusual)

Ok, guys..

I just dropped a 598 c.i. ford stroker in my mustang and I am facing an unusual oil pressure issue. The engine holds 45lbs pressure cold and 15lbs pressure hot. The pressure does not increase with RPMs more than 1-2lbs.
We have changed oil pump, gauge, and checked oil galley plugs. we have also pulled the pan and primed the engine to see if we had a cam bearing washed out. I am at a loss and could use your insight and theories. Thanks folks.
