My normal idle oil pressure after the engine (3.6L) has warmed up is 26 psi. This seems lower than the reported 30 psi values for the same engine. Is this a cause for concern?

Looks like you have many very informative posts on this forum. Well done, sir. Thank you. Just curious to understand why this is likely not an issue in your thinking.

Mine varies between 29-30 but that's it from the times I've checked it.
