What Oil Pressure are people getting at idle on a hot Engine. ? The manual says 40 psi at 2000 rpm but what’s the average on a good engine at hot idle?

On start up from cold I get 80psi at idle (800 rpm)  but when hot it drops to 20 psi at idle  

For info the car is currently on Millers Pistoneeze sae30 running in oil

To be honest, if the sump is full of gnat's piss "running in oil" then getting enough pressure to extinguish the warning light at hot idle means you're good to go. You would expect an improvement with the right oil and that improvement will likely be as many PSI as you're expecting to achieve.
