What are the numbers you have to base this question upon? Pressure at idle [900 rpm] ... 1500, rpm, 2000 rpm, 2500 rpm, 3000 rpm, 3500 rpm, 4000 rpm, 4500 rpm, 5000 rpm, 5500 rpm, 6000 rpm ... all at 190F???

If you are still using the early pre-76 oil pump ... it has the smallest of all of the pressure pumps, and it has been well-discussed regarding low pressure at idle! As long as full spec pressure is met with hot oil at 6000 rpm, there is nothing to worry about!
