    You can get a replacement switch, the OE one triggers at 3psi and i'm sure you can get replacement ones to trigger at 10psi for example, there may even be adjustable ones.

    The one on the dash is an Oil Pressure warning light, it's controlled by the switch on the back of the pump and is triggered at 3 psi i think.

    Yeah the one above is the sort of thing you need, you may just be able to get one off a different make/model of car.

    The one above also triggers at 20 psi which is a little too soon if you ask me, i know alot of 4G63/4 Evo's have been know to run around 17-18 psi oil pressure after a right hard run and it does them no harm.
