That sounds low if you used the Kaase pump. I'd start by dumping the oil in a clean pan and look for signs of failure. Also pull the filter and cut it open. If it's clean, it may be something simple. Did it sound okay? I've been in your shoes a few times. Hang in there.

How much valve spring pressure? I've had bad luck with cam bearings in the past. BBF have woefully narrow ones....

What is your pick-up to pan clearance? What oil and what bearing clearances were used during the build?

Where are you pulling your oil pressure reading from the top or the front? It was suggested to me to pull it off the front. Sometimes you can get erratic readings pulling it off the top. I haven't tried it yet, because I am pulling my motor next weekend. Just thought I'd pass it along.
