How do you test for that and how do you know that the system runs better now?

Can you give a more detailed explanation of how you altered the pressure? (I am not familiar with the oil system).

Thanks.
I probably didn't need any additional pressure, but with all the money I had in my engine, it made sense and was an easy mod. It boosted pressure by about 20 psi (1.5 bar).

You can search the forum for exact details, but basically, you are shimming the pressure relief springs using 2 or 3 6mm washers. It takes less than 5 min to add the washers/shims.
