How can i get more oil pressure out of a 1991 7.3 IDI...I'm runnin about 10-20 pds @600-700 rpm and about 40-45 pds @2100 @ normal operating temp...I don't like the low at the idel though I'd like to see both ends up about 10-15 pds...Is there a better oil pump for my truck out there???

10 lbs per 1000 rpm. Your doing fine. Volume is more critical than pressure, 70 pounds of oil pressure is near worthless if the clearances are too small.

Oil flow is more important than oil pressure. Low pressure means more flow with a positive displacement pump. The film strength of the oil and its additives are what is preventing wear. The system pressure just makes sure that the heat generated is carried away and a fresh supply of oil is there to replace what has been heated up & squished away.

Relieving oil pressure will release some horsepower and torque. To improve any oil flow, you must remove all casting flash and radius each edge within the system. Drain back is just as important as exiting the pump.

Horsepower = Pressure (PSIG) × Flow (GPM)/ 1714
Assume approx 1 GPM per 1000 RPM
HP=55 PSI X 2 GPM / 1714 = .064 HP = not worth the effort for HP gain
