2010 ram 1500 5.7 just completed mds delete, new cam and lifters after #3 cylinder intake lifter took out cam. Prior to parking vehicle for repairs oil pressure was reading 20 pounds lower than what was normal for the truck. Normal prior to failure was 52-55 pounds warm engine at highway cruise speeds, 65 or so when cold and driving. Since I was into the motor figured be a good time to replace oil pump as I ended up driving the truck more than I wanted to untill I had another means of transportation to fix mind. Went with the milling 10452 pump. High pressure not high volume. Thing hits 90 plus psi first starting off and after warm highway cruise speeds 65 to low 70 psi. Is this acceptable?

To me, it’s a tad high. But if your not pushing seals out, you should be fine. Also a benefit will be getting more oil to cam/lifters.
