If it is that low above idle, the problem is somewhere in the build. Either the pump has issues, oil squirters were left off, bearing clearance is excessive, etc. Sadly, all of these require taking it out and opening up the bottom end. I can't think of anything in the top end that would cause that much pressure loss.
15psi while idling at around 190 degrees .
@2000rmps oil pressure is @ 45psi.
As it gets hotter pressure drops low enough to signal the low oil pressure light
