I didn't have any oil pressure problems with the 3.2L, but changed the restrictors over anyway when building the new 3.5L.

Didn't have any significant wear on the int. shaft gear or sprockets with 88K on the motor without the restrictors.

With the new restrictors, the oil press (according to the gauge mind you) is just under 5 bar while driving at an rpm under 4,000 when cold. At idle, the oil press is at 2 bar when cold.

When the motor is warm and at operating temp, the oil press is between 1.5-2 bar on the gauge at idle. Under acceleration when the motor is warm, oil press is just like when it is cold, just under the 5 bar mark.

Just another data point to throw into the mix.
