oil pressure should always go up when you are revving because the oil pump is spinning faster. sounds ok to me. you only need to worry if it is on 0 when you are idleing.

As much as the above is true, check your oil pressure sender connection. Its a cylinderical thing on the intake side of the block, under the intake manifold. There's a single wire going to it. Check it. Funny things happen when they get unplugged and dirty...





Cheap, fast and reliable.. choose 2.
