Default Low Pressure Issue

Hi, I posted about a low pressure issue I am having in another section.

370Z Low Oil Pressure

I was looking through some of the posts and saw some one has a pretty inexpensive list of parts they bought to fix it.

Update: So I am going to get it looked at by a reputable shop around me. But I really don't want them using the same cheap parts if possible. I'd like to recommend them to use upgraded parts. Not sure if they will do this, but if anyone has any trustworthy shop they know of in the tri-state are then I might check them out.

EPS gallery gasket is the kit you should get. If replaced with OEM, they'll blow out again. I also recommend changing out the water pump and possible getting some work done to the oil pump, have it ported or billet gears or get the suckerpunch oil pump kit. It is labor intensive to get these gaskets done, might as well spend once, cry once...

The revised OEM gasket are metal and will not blow out(post 2012), i would still change the fasteners tho.

Fasteners are the issue not the gasket material...
