    My girl has been running fine, better than fine, like a bat outta hell.
    But my question is, is 50 ok at idle?

    YES! The rule of thumb is 10 psi for every 1000 RPM. So if you are @ 50 PSI and assuming your idle is around 650-800... YEA your in great shape! :D Take care Dan

    As stated above, idle oil pressure is not real important.
    If you have that pressure when standing on it at 4000rpm with a hot engine, you are in good shape.
