I was always told it shuld operate and no more than 10 psi unloaded. I'm running a constant 16-18 under normal driving situations... No puking or coolant loss tho.

I read your story and im sure you have bad HGs just like my trk did with your same symptoms. Its just your gaskets are not that bad yet.. I would almost bet money on it. 16-18 constant means problems..
