low oil pressure

After passing 15k I have noticed my oil pressure at idle when fully warmed up is only about 7 psi Is this normal on a stock 103 Sure makes me nervous. At speed 2200 rpm and above pressure is 32 psi. I ve tried both synthetic and synthetic blend and see no change in pressure'
THANKS

Smile Oil pressure?

What is the engine oil temp? What weight of oil are you using? How many miles on the oil?

Your numbers are fine and normal. You can install this to increase pressures at idle. http://www.axtellsales.com/Axtell-bypass-system.html This product WILL make a difference.

If you are worried about the low pressure at idle lowering oil temps can help:
If you are in a 90* plus temps and have oil temps over 230* you might think about going to a heavier weight of oil, adding cooling fans to your oil cooler to lower temps and getting your tune squared away as that will also help the oil temp.

Had a similar issue. Went to straight syn50 and it now drops to 15/17 at idle at steady 32 at operating rpm. All good.
