Wow! That seems kinda scary! the only thing that would cause really high oil pressure is a pressure valve??

There is a pressure regulator on the oil pump, essentially a spring loaded relief valve. If it fails it can cause presure to rise dramatically. Oil pumps are pd pumps, they'll pump till they break something without a relief valve. This is a pretty dangerous condition, high pressure can cause a cam bearing to spin. Good luck. :rolleyes:

You're right, I was thinking of that bypass but saying where the check is. Brain Fart. Sorry.
