I just had this problem last summer. See post below. Not saying that is your problem and I'm sure there are other things that the cause low oil pressure like worn bearings etc...

Accusump install

For me, it ended up being a valve spring that broke, taking out the hydraulic lifter and valve keeper debris being swallowed through the bank 2 scavenge pump and main oil pump. This in turn damaged the oil pump gears and aluminum pump cassette walls. So the moral of the story for me was that I tried different oils, installed the upgraded pressure relief piston and spring etc... to no avail, until I dropped the oil sump to discover the debris. The oil pump and cassette are about $500 and probably a PIA to replace with the engine in...
