My experience is that dry sump systems start low gain pressure then level off.. DOnt know for sure why,, but I fiddle with sprint cars and they all start out at 70lbs,, go up to about 100 then level back to about 85.

Of course the engine builder causes most of it, by setting the relief on the pump and it depends on how thick of oil is in there to start with...
