Oil pressure at WOT?

So I noticed that my ZL doesn’t ever seem to eclipse low 50’s in oil pressure, even at WOT. I’ve always practiced the standard that 10psi per 1k rpm is minimum but have seen pressures regulated to less by design. Just wondering if this is one of those applications or if I should start snooping around. What are you guys seeing at WOT?

I see about the same, a couple of lbs less since installing an external oil cooler. I would guess, though the general rule of 10 lbs per 1000 rpm is considered normal, our stock pumps can only create so much pressure. Guess they top out at just over 50+lbs....
