Oil pressure lower than expected 30-35 PSI

by James Cool
(Newport, WA, US)

I bought this 2016 Corvette and have just begun to drive it. It has so many buttons I am still afraid of touching the wrong one. The oil is new and is half way down the hash marked area. It has the Hennessy supercharger package and goes like a satisfied ape. It only has 6800 miles on it and the oil pressure, when warm, is way low compared to other cars I have owned. Never getting over 40 psi and mostly hovering about 30 psi. It has the LT 1 with a dry sump, which I am unfamiliar with, but understand the basics.

Thanks for any and all help,
