Hello all..just a quick question...

What Oil pressure reading are you getting.  

I'm using a stock sensor with an adapter and getting around 50 with initial startup and about 30-35 when hot.(been running for a while)

Pressure still building with pedal press.

Typically idle cold is about 35-40 psi. Idle hot will drop down to the 20's, and revved up should be around 60 psi. Unless you have an aftermarket oil pump, then the numbers will be 10-20 psi higher.

I got a new I O ring for the pickup tube
Has anyone had issue with the adaptor for the oil filter not sealing or causing no pressure?

do you have a mecanical gauge ? im using stock 944 sending unit with a Adaptor off ebay. While cranking no engine running you should get around 2 bars build up while cranking ! tell us the story of ur car and when it started this no Oil pressure. Is it knocking ? or just lifter noise ?

When I first got mine together I had to prime the oil pump.  It had zero pressure until then.  On driver side front there is a hex bit you will unscrew and fill.until it pours our.  

Mine was great afterwards.
