This is normal oil pressure on a combination like yoursand nothing to worry about. Pontiacs are known for rear mail seal leakage and unless you used a Viton seal from BOP your going to have leakage out of the rope seal. As far as the dipstick I believe that if your engine has the windage tray that the lower portion of the dipstick tube may have been left out and the throws on the crankshaft are hitting the dipstick itsself and knocking it back out, due to the dipstick not going on down into the oilpan correctly and just going to the top of the windage tray and turning.
