    Go speak to an engine rebuilder, maybe a specialist would be able to balance the motor nicely for you too... :-)

    Thats good mileage mine has just turned 160k..oil pressure is one that comes to us all..suppose matters how you drive it?..........whati s the pressure sitting at when hot should be for that mileage about 1.5-2bar

    What oil are you putting in her as well 10-60 wouldnt do any harm

    One thing for got to mention how is the turbo?.......if you leave it sitting ticking over for a long time do you get blue smoke out of her for to sec's..low oil pressure can be caused by seals in the turbo going..mine are on there way 2.3 bar does not help.......
