Oil pressure gauge.

I am going to buy a oil pressure gauge, but do I buy one that goes up to 100 or one that is higher.
What I want to know if the oil pressure will pass 100, because I dont want a gauge that reads up to 400, and it will only go up to 80 or something like that.
Thanks :dsm:

I'm not sure about on the EVO's, but on the DSM's the oil pressure at idle with the engine could could be a bit over 100. After the oil warms up it drops down a lot, but it is not good to peg a gauge even for a little while during warm up. I would say get a 150 psi if you can find it.
