after 5 days running the delo 400. i notice the hot oil pressure is not as good as liqui moly mos2 10w-40.

i used to get 65psi hot with the LM. delo 400 15w-40 im only getting 55psi hot. both measure at 3krpm.

is there any problem?

That sounds like plenty of oil pressure to me.

Changing to a diffrent brand of oil filter will change the pressures as well so keep that in mind.
I also see no problem with the oil pressures you have now.
Oil pressures you should be looking at are the max and the min you are seeing on the gauge.
Do you have an oil temp gauge?
