Is that on cold start or was it's at normal temp already? But if you are getting 80 psi at 3000 rpm than you must be a little over or close to 100 at WOT. If that is the case then shiming the oil pump is going to raise your oil pressure even greater.

That's at normal temperature. Note: the 1/2 liter of lucas oil stabiliser make the oil thicker and that could raise up the pressure like it say on the bottle. I got that engine at 12,000km and I was always putting that lucas stabiliser with the castrol 10W30 and now it's aroung 100,000km. The gauge I got is showing pressure in BAR but if I convert to psi it give me 80psi at 3k-7k or 5.5BAR.
