Hmmm...same as mine. makes me wonder why the drop in oil pressure with addition of a turbo vs a 6.5'85 K-5
Turbo - Yes Banks T04B
Idle Hot - 20-25 psi
Idle Cold - 45-50 psi
Cruising Hot - 30-45 psi(depending on RPM)
Cruising Cold 50-60+ psi
Cruising very cold - close to 70 psi. Seen almost 80 psi once under a forced hard accel when cold(really bad drivers up here).
Engine is a Goodwrench crate 6.2 660 block of unknown age but roughly ~20-30k miles by internal cleanliness and main bearing inspection.
Oil is Rotella T 15w-40.
Turbo - Yes GM-8
Idle Hot - 25-35 psi
Idle Cold - 55-60 psi
Cruising Hot - 45-55 psi
Cruising Cold - 55-60+ psi
Cruising very cold - 65-70 psi
Engine is original with 195K miles on it.
Oil is 15w-40 Amsoil Synthetic
Both trucks are running off the factory dash gauge.
6.5s have a larger oil capacity, due to the larger oil cooler.Hmmm...same as mine. makes me wonder why the drop in oil pressure with addition of a turbo vs a 6.5
Hmmm.. I have a Lube Specialist Kit too I could easily install. I am seeing about 38-40 hot cruise. This motor has 60k on it. That seems low but then again you guys are basing your numbers on the factory gauge. Mine is an Autometer so it may be more accurate.6.5s have a larger oil capacity, due to the larger oil cooler.
when i swapped to the lube specialist lines and cooler during my switch to synthetic it took close to 10 quarts to get it back to the "full" mark.
The K-5 takes 7 quarts if you don't drain the oil cooler, and just a hair over 8 if you do.
