    Temp sounds about right, mine is running a t about 90 unless i'm doing 40mph+ then it drops down.

    Not sure on the oil pressue but it should be low on idle and then pick up as you rev so again sounds right.

    Someone else may be able to give you a 100% answer

    oil pressure will drop as the car heats up, and the oil thins a bit, quite normal, mine starts at 55psi at idle and settles to about 35 when hot, as long as it rise when you rev it'll be fine
