The idle speed is way too low, but you probably know that.
Three bar at idle? What is the deal with that? Is that cold oil pressure or when the engine is up to temp?

If you hear a knock coming from the rear of the rear of the engine at idle....with that kind of oil pressure, I would take the valve covers off, top and bottom and inspect the camshaft lobes for any signs of wear/scoring.
