Oil Pressure on S65

Anyone tracking/racing their E90/92 M3 have a gauge or data sensor for oil pressure hooked up? Just about to start driving mine on the track and would like to know what kind of pressures people are seeing and what is typical for this engine.

I hear you! I don't understand why my '97 Jeep ZJ has an oil temp AND oil pressure AND water temp gauge, but a BMW does not.

On older BMWs the idiot light for oil pressure doesn't light until it's down to something like single digits, by which time it's too late if I'm at the track. I hope it's at least set for higher PSI in the M3.
