Default Oil Pickup - cleaning? Oil light flicker

Ok, to rerun my oil return line from turbo to the oilpan, i dropped the pan. I remember my oil pickup i could see through the hole at the bottom there was a loose "foam screen". I thought it was just a filter so i didnt think much of it. I also just got my OBDI setup working. I bolted everything back up, and now when the car idles from driving the oil light flickers, if I rev it up it goes away. I have an electrical oil pressure gauge and it reads roughly 10psi at idle. I have plenty of oil. My oil filter is probably about 3K miles old, oil is new...... I'll try changing it and see if it makes it go away.

I searched any many say its the oil pump, which I do not want to eliminate, but i think i may drop the pan and check out the pickup, should I get rid of that foam filter in on the bottom? I will also do an oil change tommorow too.

Also, don't see how this would have anything to do with it, but everything was fine before this, the car just sat in the garage for about a month on 2 front jackstands, much of the time the oil pan was out because of me prepping it for the new return. After i fixed it i plugged in my OBDII ECU and drove around the block, and the problem was not there. THen i got my OBDI ecu to work so i drove on the streets and brought it up to 5K and then i noticed the problem starting to happen.

Any ideas?
