Uh, it's supposed to increase with higher revolutions.

Your oil pressure will rise as the RPMs rise, the more the engine turns the more the oil pump pushes through more oil.(causing a rise in pressure) It's normal.

Now you may have added too much oil your last change causing too much oil pressure but you didn't say you had an issue after an oil change though.

As said, that is very normal, nothing to worry about.

... and car enthusiasts wonder why newer vehicles have dummy gauges. Like some GM cars and their water temp gauge that reads 210 when warmed up, no matter if it is 180-230 degrees.

I live here.........

Yeah, it's normal. Should be as high as 60lbs at big throttle and just under 35-40psi at idle.

FYI, Most run 5 3/4-6 1/4 quarts of oil for 6.0s.
