Has anybody logged oil pressure on the track?

Anybody have any idea what N54 cars are maintaining for oil pressure in sweepers, sustained lefts, etc on r-comps, R1's, or slicks? I can't log oil pressure on the Cobb (if I can, I'm missing it) so I will probably be running a mechanical oil pressure gauge just to keep an eye on it.

Until I do that, has anyone already done this and can ease my fears about low pressure in sustained left hand turns @ 255-265F oil temps? I'm using the 0w-40 Mobil 1 group IV synthetic right now. Do I need to go to a thicker oil?

Does anyone do baffled oil pans for N54's? Anybody mounted an accusump?

Thanks all.

Sorry, I came close with oil temp. That's a good one (oil pressure) to log. I will check when I get home if I can get that off the CAN bus. If I can, I will be sure to start logging that and I will post here on e90post.

Thanks, I am specifically interested in whether the n54 oil pan and pickups are adequate for track use to keep the oil pressure up. When you can log that, let me know. I'm probably going to be adding an oil pressure gauge.

No need. Been tracking hard since 40K miles. I'm at over 100k, with no issues. It's a non issue for us. The E90 M3 on the other hand............

Good news, thank you sir. I might get the gauge anyway.
