> I think a 10W-30 oil will be a good choice for street use. I've used 10W-30 Valvoline VR1 in two old Hemis with no problems.

The factory engines didn't have the hole, and they were quite reliable. If your engine already has the drilled plug, that's okay- the only result will be lower oil pressure at idle.

I use 10W-40, with the plug drilled, & have the same oil pressure you do. I did have the dizzy gear on a Cleveland cam strip.
