Default H22A Oil Pressure

I am curious what my oil pressure should be. Once its warmed up it sits around 30psi. But, under a load (WOT) it goes from 75psi and up. My autometer gauge stops at 100psi and it sits pretty close to it when at WOT.
The oil I use is 5w20 RP and a Mobil1 filter. My sending unit is on the sandwich plate between the filter and the block, maybe that is why the high numbers?
The engine has roughly 100k miles on it and is internally stock. The oil level is right below the full mark. The oil pan has a small dent to make room for the traction bar install, the car is a CRX (previous owner).
Any info would be great but I think this is normal, just making sure.

Mine idles at ~20psi when fully warm with Mobil1 5w30. My Autometer Oil Pressure sending unit is tapped with a T fitting off of the stock oil pressure sensor location. At WOT, my oil pressure seems to be ~85 psi.

That sounds normal. btw, oil pressure has nothing to do with throttle position...

What oil pressure do you have at idle and about 7000 rpm? I have 101 psi/7 bar at 7000 rpm. Is that normal? My tuner told that its too high. Thanks guys!
