Did it go into the red, or just the far edge of the white zone. What was the max PSI seen?I was wrong in my previous post. Usually I never look at the oil pressure when I am winding it up, I look at the road. Well, today I wound it up in second and the pressure went up the the right edge of the gauge and dropped right back to normal after I upshifted to sixth and at 2000 rpm.
I’ve seen 72 PSI on mine (fully warmed up), frequently in the red, and dealer swears it’s “normal.” Still makes me nervous 😬Thanks guys. My dealer had it for two days, and they said it’s “normal”, because two of the 718 Ss they have on the lot did the same. I’m going to follow up with Porsche. It has gone as high as 76 PSI, at 4500 RPM, with a fully warmed up engine. I never go over 3K RPM, before the engine oil is up to temp.
Totally agree!Thanks all! I'm going to nag Porsche until they agree to re-calibrate the oil pressure gauges in the 982. During normal operation, no gauge on a car should be going into the red zone.
Good luck with that. I don't think Porsche is receptive to outside advice.Thanks all! I'm going to nag Porsche until they agree to re-calibrate the oil pressure gauges in the 982. During normal operation, no gauge on a car should be going into the red zone.
