Normal Oil Pressure?

What's the normal oil pressure for a 3.0? I'm looking into getting a oil pressure gauge but I want the needle in the middle if possible. I'm gonna say 15 psi? but thats just a guess haha.

It varies with oil viscosity, oil temperature and RPM, among other things. The manual doesn't give a pressure range but a good SWAG might be about 15~50 psi under normal conditions. I would get a 0~100 PSI gauge - that should put the needle somewhere near midscale on the highway and in the lower range at idle.
