Anyone know what sort of oil pressure the I6's typically run at? I'm needing to go and find some hose for my engine oil cooler and it'd be nice to have some sort of idea of what I need. The engine oil pressure gauge on the dash isn't much help as it doesn't have units on it.

Ended up with one rated to 250psi. There happened to be a mechanic at the shop that I know as he's a customer at my work. He's the local bloke for NOS installs and that, and he told me to get that hose, said he used the same stuff on a VL V8 Supercharged the other month.
