hey guys, just recently noticed, when i rev my car hard (to 5500rpm) the oil pressure gauge drops down to the 1 just above the red and i can hear the motors ticking like crazy wen windows down but then it raises up again and it clears up and it sounds fine after about 5 seconds and ive stopped revin it hard, but then wen i rev it out again the oil pressure gauge drops and motor sounds unhealthy till the oil pressure goes back up again (doesnt sound unhealthy for long, only about 5 seconds)... so is the oil pump on its way u reckon?

btw im running a AUTO EDXR6 ecu and everytime i start the car when its cold it revs to 2000rpm and HOLDS it there for about 30 seconds then drops down to idle and never does it wen its warm again only when its cold eg overnight start in the moarning....could this lead to the oil pump starting to fail as as soon the motor start its revving it to 2000rpm...

thanks, any comments would be appriciated

It probably sounds unhealthy because it is unhealthy for an EB to go to 5500rpm?
