996 Oil Pressure


Vehicle Information: Year: 1999; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 14,000;

On a 270 degree on-ramp at 4000 RPM in second gear, oil pressure will drop from 5 bar to 3.5 bar toward the end of the ramp. Is the pickup becoming starved? 3.5 bar is plenty of pressure based on Porsche specs, but am I sending air and oil to the bearings, thus the drop in pressure? Is a drop in pressure harming the engine?My oil is Mobil 1 0W-40 with a Porsche filter.
