High oil pressure 2014 lfx

Hey guys I have a 2014 LT RS camaro and I noticed the oil pressure was sitting at 2.7-2.8 bar warmed up. From what I read that means itís idling at about 40 psi? Isnít that a little high? Also, on acceleration of any type.. not even hard acceleration.. it is reading 6 bar (maxxed out) which is roughly ~85 psi? Is this normal? I just had my oil changed at the dealer a couple months ago.

that usually happens when the car isnt warmed up... after driving for 20-30min it goes away

Mine idles around 30# and under acceleration the oil pressure needle is pegged (70) so it sounds about right.
