First of all 60lbs. of oil pressure is not the maximum. That just happens to be how much the gauge indicates.
Secondly, I have never heard of that. (It being "bad" running at that level, or that high oil pressure is a bad thing) Actually it's quite the opposite. You ask anyone that does recreational or professional automotive racing if higher oil pressure is "good" or "bad". Of course it's good.
And I can tell you there is no wiring or censors hooked up incorrectly.
I've had the car since 1998, and it has always ran at that pressure, and she runs like she's brand new.
I have two mechanics that have worked on that car over the years.....both with 25 years experience under their belt and one a camaro/firebird specialists, both are aware of the oil pressure, both have commented on it being a "good thing".
What's the redline on the oil level gauge on your car? I know my car runs at 40psi or a little below it. (I'll double check tommorrow)
Since I was under the impression that 60PSi was your max. I was taught that max oil pressure = boom. So yeah, sorry about that.
