The pressure sendor is on the abck of th eoil pump where there's pressure, a pressure sensor in the sump is pretty lame considering the oil in the sump is just a well waiting to be draw in to the pump to be pressureised.

you mean the 4psi pressure switch? Yep useless, a better idea is to have a 25psi pressure switch in there, will take longer to go out when you start up, but if it ever comes on you have a better chance of not destroying the engine.

My current and past engine regulary go below 25psi when up to temp at idle.

1.5 bar hot idle oil pressure is normal.
