I'm getting low oil pressure, 50-80 KPA on idle and low 400s at max (390-440)KPA

What could be causing this? Stuck pressure relief valve? It's a new pump and engine

That does seem lower than what I would expect...at least it wasn't as low as mine during the initial start - 35 kpa! But ours was traced to a missing bearing race for the missing balance shafts.

How many miles? Bearing failure? Is there sparkles in the oil?

Some sparkles in the oil will be expected due to the engine breaking in, haven't seen any significant sparkles though! Probably only about 500 miles at this point and 4 oil changes
