Low Oil psi

Finished Auto-X today, changed oil yesterday went back to Mobile 1 after using Royal Purple the last three times. I will add I change oil every 2500 miles or at 75% which ever comes first, also have been using K & N oil filters last two changes. Today after third lap I notice at idle it quite a bit less than the 30psi it normally has at idle when running Auto-X, also oil temp was just over 200. Has any body else had this happen with Mobile 1. I think I am going to check into Redline or Amsoil. Also I have the 2012 LFX with just a little over 12550 miles.

When mine is hot and at idle I am a little below 30 PSI on the console gauge. It looks like that is probably normal for this engine. I use Mobile 1. Mine ran a little higher when my dealer overfilled my crankcase by more than a quart. Not a good way to get you roil pressure up.
