The oil pressure is not low unless its below 1.5 bar @ idle, or does not jump up to 3 bar with a little throttle.

Also, synthetics will appear to be very thin even when cold... that is a benefit.

the shifting could be a few things. Look for a cable that comes up the passenger side of the engine. Try to get a sense of when this cable starts creating tension in reference to the beginning of throttle movement. It should make just a little bit of tension before the engine speed increases.

Oil pressure at idle is between 1 and 1.5, and goes straight to 3 when press the accelerator. I checked the oil while it was still a bit warm, and it just didn't look healty, it was almost the consistency of water but not quite there...

Oil PSI is good. That is normal.
