ICP pressure ?

What should my ICP psi be at a warm engine idle? I had a no hot start problem but did the updated STC fitting, stand pipes and dummy plugs and all 4 passenger side injector o-rings because one was really bad. I didn't do the other side because I already had it back together. Now it starts when hot but it cranks over longer than normal. My ICP when hot reads 580. Should I be OK or should I tear down the drivers side again and do the rest of the o-rings?

you need to run the engine hard to purge all of the air out of the high pressure oil system. 5 or 6 good hard wot runs should be enough, either that or 15-20 miles of normal driving.

your ICP looks right for a hot engine. What is more telling is IPR. I am thinking the IPR should be at 20% or so when idling. It the IPR is at 60% when idling to hold the ICP up, that means you have a problem.

Go look for a post where someone lists the IPR% and ICP at various temps.

IPR typically will be less than 30, mine is 28, and ICP 650 +-50 on a healthy HPO system.

How do I figure out what my IPR is? I just got the full color and touch screen edge monitor but can't find anything on the IPR on it. How are you guys getting a percentage?
