The low pressure oil system and the HPOP oil system are 2 seperate systems, each has it's own pump and regulator system. They do however work in conjunction with each other in this respect. The low pressure pump provides the oil to the HPOP resivoir to keep it full of oil for the HPOP to use.
So should the Lpop fail to pump enough oil to the resivoir it will affect the HPOP system out put.
FYI the dash gauge is little more than a idiot light which is one of the reasons everyone recomends getting real gauges or a monitoring system. The dash gauge registers from 7 psi when it registers at all. Not much oil considering the min recomended pressure is 45 psi at the filter houseing.
