S15 Forged SR20DET Oil and Fuel Pressure's

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

Im trying to diagnose a couple of issues with my car. Its an S15 with a forged motor running on e85. My oil pressure at idle is between 8 and 12psi when the car has been driven and fully warm. Im running a walbro460 fuel pump and the Fuel pressure on idle is 43 psi. 

Are these figures about right? Im running hks 272 camshafts and at idle its very lumpy, could this be a reason why the oil pressure is low on idle ?

Thankyou in advance 👍

What oil are you running? If it's a low vis like a synthetic 5w you will see oil pressures will be lower than you'd expect.

I'd better go with synthetic 10w60  on every turbo engine
