1997 lt1 oil pressure?

Is this about right

Just a bit after cold start, I know my tach for some reason is at zero while idling. During this video and when it was started it was always idling above 40 psi (5w30 oil)

This is after car got above 210 at idle and quick snap of the gas

No way to know if the gauge is accurate considering the other issues with the instrument panel.
You noeed to sort out some wiring issues or something.

I dont think it's wiring, it started this after I dropped it on the ground.

There's obviously some circuit board issues with the instrument panel.
I'd be looking for a replacement.
No way you can trust anything on that one.
