    Changed the oil and filter a few months ago on my 05 LLY. Made a remote mount filter setup (about 10" away so not very far, on the frame rail) to run a CAT high efficiency filter.

    Oil pressure until I warm up is about 60psi. Once warmed up at Idle I drop to about 25-30psi, soon as I touch the gas I'm a little under 60 (about 55 or so). Sound about the same as everyone elses here?

    Low oil pressure alarm is at 9 PSI. (On 2008 anyway.) Oil pressure always looks a little low, as in not at 40, on GM diesels at idle after they warm up.

    What you are describing sounds normal.

    Good to hear guys thank you. Caught me off guard when I glanced at it when idling and the pressure was so low haha. Really liking this truck.
