Ford 6.0 oil problem

Hello new to the site. Got a stumper here!
2003 ford 6.0 customer cooked 3 turbos and finally brought it
To me

I found has 30psi low oil pressure and when u rev it up drops
To 10psi or lower then slowly returns to 30 psi at idle.
Removed lpop and has little scratches on front and back of gerotors
And housing has scratches

Ford oil filter and cap oem
No high pressure leaks found when pressure testing

Need help thank u

I was leaning towards that but just don't understand how it has oil pressure at idle unless it sucks air when off idle

If the pump flutters or cavitates (creates turbulence) at higher RPM it will not be able to move enough fluid.
