i dont know, i want to measure mine. Thats why im asking ...
Dyno figures are all in order but i still dont hear my engine note of change as i climb 5000rpm.

Re: oil Pressure and Oil Pump

the note will only change if you have an exhuast or an induction, and only at 6200, can you feel lift kicking in when driving?

Re: oil Pressure and Oil Pump

yes, all that is in order. power figures are right. im just thinking if  maybe my oil pressure can be  low at some point thats why the note of change is not loud ...

Re: oil Pressure and Oil Pump

no, the solenoid for lift is either on or off, if you had low oil pressure it would not activate at all as there would not be enough pressure to push the sliding pin to lock the rocker arms . and if the oil pressure was low enough for lift not to engage you can bet your ass the motor would have blew up a long time ago

Re: oil Pressure and Oil Pump

thanks a lot WGMR2, that clears things up quite a bit.

Re: oil Pressure and Oil Pump

Does the oil pump need to be replaced? or serviced? and if so at what mileage?
