i seem to have the same problem.
i've an electrial gauge and on idle it starts at 2 bar and over ten min it works up to just under 3 bar and when i drive for a bit it comes back down

no leaks at all. i've done about 250 miles since i bought it last week.
the only leak is oil leak (still have to figure out where!.

today was a really warm day. both windows open fully at 120kph kinda warm

and to top it off the top bleed nipple is shagged so need to replace that too

i checked my fluids friday. all ok
went for a spin today an hour there. a few hours sitting there looking pretty then an hour home then went for another hour dive

just checked the fluids now and the think was just empty. now i was in the passenger seat all day checking the gauges the hole time
it never went above 85 degrees and sat at 65 most of the time?
and no smoke out of the exhaust either?

your oil light can come on if there is too much preassure too! (dunno about 5.s but my mazda and pajero do)

my car only hits 80 degrees after a goo hours driving off boost. on boost it could be 5-10 min.

is there too much oil?

what side does the headlight harness go through the bulk head?
there is power at the relay but not at the lights so its somewhere between them

there isnt a single part of the original loom that wasnt butcherd! but now the rear of the car is perfect!

i'm thinking of loosing the intercooler in the bay to help spool times a bit.

i have an oil leak somewhere from the de gasser i think? can i get rid of it and fit a catch tank?

sorry to hijack but what is the normal idle/low rev oil preassure ment to be? mines at 2.3 2.5 bar on idle and off boost?

thought i'd share my experiences with you all

its a 1991 gt so the last of them made! i have a uk plate here on the original bumper too!
when i got it, it looked like someone had driven through halfords with glue on the car!

first port of call was to get rid of the tacky stuff

next was to start on the dodgy wiring

finally got it to this.
