Oil pressure at idle

Can a few here give me their oil pressure readings at idle after your engine has warmed up? (3.8L motor).

I'm seeing 10 - 12 psi at 600 - 700 rpm idle with an oil temperature of 225F. Just wanted to compare to see if this was average. I see 50 - 55psi at 3k rpm at 225F as well. Running Amsoil OE 5w-30 engine oil.

My engine has almost 70k miles on it now running fairly high rpms most of its life with 4.88 gears and stock 32" tires.

Looking for engine oil pressure readings at idle and after the motor is completely warmed up from anyone that has added a pressure gauge.
