2005 996 GT3 oil pressure in GT3


Vehicle Information: Model: 996 GT3; Year: 2005; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 5900;

Dear Joel:I have searched this topic and can not find the explanation specifically relevant to my situation. According to the owner's manual, the oil pressure for the GT3 engine should be 3.5 BAR at 3000 RPM after the engine is warmed up. However, the pressure level in my car is consistently 4.5 or higher (but 5 BAR) at the same 3000 RPM even after extended driving. I use Mobil 1 0W-40, and I change the oil every 6 months. The oil level is always one segment below the maximum on the e-gauge. The car is used mostly on the street. There are no other issues and coolant temp is always around 180 F. Should I be worried about this? Please advise.REGARDS,
