...on a true cold start it will idle fine (60-70ish) and one it gets warmed up it’ll idle 30-40 psi
I see no issue with these values. Mine has a 5W30, cold idle = 2.5 bar, 88 °C idle = 1.3 bar, 9000 rpm and 88 °C is 3.2 bar. The engine is fine with it. No single wear indications up to know after 35 h tuning and analysis operation, which is really hard. The bearing clearances are on the higher end of the 5W30 specification. Oil flow is more important then a high oil pressure only. If you know it flows well, lower pressures are acceptable.
