    I just put an electrical oil pressure guage in my car.At idle it is 75psi at any amount of throttle it stays on 100 psi.Is this normal? Seems kinda of high to me.my motor is a B18c5

    Your right! You should see between 35 & 45psi @ idle. Unless your running 90W oil! I would try another guage first. Also, if you have a multi-meter, check resistance @ the sending unit.
