Default

15 PSI at what RPM and what coolant temperature? My LB7 idles at about that when warm.

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.
