617 oil pressure

So i hooked up the Land Rover oil pressure gauge and it's showing 30psi at idle and goes past 80 (and it'd probably kept going if it had where) when it's revving.
Is that normal?

If it is a 617 Turbo when the Engine is cold on a W123 at idle it would peg the Gauge at 3 Bar and when hot the idle can drop to as low as .5 Bar.

Hot or cold when you rev up the Engine it pegs the Gauge at 3 Bar (and the Oil Pressure should rise fast) and when I hooked up a test Gauge when the Engine is reved up hot or cold I got 97 psi.

In the Manual it has that the Oil Pump Relief Valve opens ad 110 psi so that sould be the absolute max you could get when you rev the Engine.
