Just primed and checked my oil pressure before the engine goes in and got 75PSI (using a 18V BD drill), is this ok or may the rod be too tight, I check all the main and they were .001 to .0015 (by plastigage), rods were .001 or less real hard too tell.

93 SC

Every thing has been replaced.

Recheck all the bearings and all clearances are .001-.0015.

Is is safe to assume this is my new normal?

Makes me feel a bit better considering how low 4.6s oil pressure is supposed to be stock.

Well the 3.8 has the highest pressure @40-60, with the 5.0 just about the same and the 4.6 is 22-40.
