I moved the oil pressure sender from my remote filter to the OEM filter adapter. My oil pressure jumped up ~25lbs. I have confirmed the wiring and sender are both reading within spec.

So to those out there that are reading oil pressure what's your numbers? And where is you sender located?

So I guess no one else has a gauge? I figure the change in my pressure readings is due to a better ground.

So I see almost 90 lbs when the oil is hot and at redline. 65 lbs while cruising and 50 lbs at idle. Using 0w40 Mobile One.

I know the sender is accurate at 0 psi. The only way for me to check it is to add a mechanical pressure gauge.
Mine goes to 80 psi cold @ idle, then when fully warm, ~25 psi @ idle and ~70 psi under load.

I use Redline 5w-40.

When I had it mounted at the remote filter I got 25, 50 and 75 lbs at idle, cruise, and redline.
^^This seems more along what I see.

Are you using an aftermarket (Non-oem) Filter? It's weird that you would see higher numbers in one spot...

2.0T or 3.8 ?
if it is for a 2.0 where did you buy the sandwich plate?
2.0T(READ MY SIG), you need any universal M1.5x12(IIRC) Fitting and you're good to go, I bought mine from Glowshift. Mishimoto has some, Blox racing has some, etc.

Doesn't matter they all look the same, all made form CNC'ed aluminum. Only need to have a couple 1/8" NPT ports for the sensors.

What's your opinions on the adapter that comes in the Flex-a-lite kit? I thought that's what you two were running.
