    Hey i recently turboed my accord and on my mechanical oil pressure gauge it drops to around,... well it looks almost 0psi after warm up on idle! but than increases on accleration! Is this normal?? Im thinking the turbo takes a lot of the oil and i wasnt sure if i needed to add more oil or what!
    I run synthetic Mobil 1 5-30w

    What kind of oil pressure are you running at 3000? At 6000?

    the idle pressure does seem low, but stock Honda pumps put a more volume than the motor could ever use...we measured the ouput and use on the 84-87 1.5L motors and the pump volume was three times what the engines used!
