Oil warning light comes on under 1000 RPM

Any idea why the oil pressure warning light would be coming on as the car idles under 1000 RPM? Above 1000, it goes away.

I had a cracked head. Got a new head, both heads machined. Nothing done to the mid section. Pretty much everything replaced that could be. I'll be switching to 10W40 I guess, thanks.

Bosch vs Porsche MAF

Is there a difference between a Bosch MAF and a Porsche MAF (other than price)? Anyone ever encounter a defective Bosch MAF ordered on Amazon?

I heard that bad oxygen sensors could cause the car to stall. However, I haven't been getting a CEL, and the only code was P0102. Any more advice before I take the car to my mechanic?
