(I hope this isn't a double post...)

I'm programming my Mychron 3 and not sure what to set the oil pressure lights at. I've read a few different opinions...expect 10psi per 1000 rpm, low at 30, low at 10, etc. I'm not sure what's a normal low since I have the fake gauge in my 1.8 that just tells me either I have pressure or not.

I have an extra warning light so I was thinking one low and one high but don't want to pull off the track for a low signal that's not really low. (I set the water temps at 190 for low and 220 for high which I think sounds about right but if it's not, let me know)

Keith,

I have programmed my Mychron3 XGlog for 35/90 oil pressure and 160/235 water temp. Seems to work well although I am considering changing the low oil pressure to maybe 30 psi since it drops below 35 during hard braking....you'll soon see that when you look at the data.

Thanks, Jay
