How hard is relative! Removal of intake, timing cover, timing chain, and oil pan are necessary. 
You make the call if that's hard for you.
You can buy a set of lifters and a cam for $100
...but always keep this bit of info in your mind

Nothing good is ever cheap, and anything cheap is never good!

A few things I want to note about the TPM....

SCJB has nothing to do with this event.

Reckless driving wont be tolerated.

Excessive drinking and driving wont be tolerated.

Be conscious of your wake in the cove - saw a lot of boats getting swamped by people plowing through the cove.

This is a day to pay respect to a man who made a difference in this tight knit community. Its not a party or race. Just hang out, drink a cold one or two, and have a good time with some friends in the off season.  :thumbup:

Sounds fine to me. 50 wt is gonna carry more static pressure than normal and the thing I noticed running the VR-1 in my old Biesemeyer's 460, it was pretty damn consistent pressure across the RPM range. Hot/cold didn't seem to matter. It had been running 10w30 Castrol before I bought it, but the idle oil pressure worried me (10-15 psi or so hot) so when I changed it, I went "all in" with the VR-1/50. Old, tired motor, figured it could use a little love and tenderness......   :screwy:

Now, that being said, understand that excessive oil pressure is back pressure of oil that is having trouble, too heavy, or can't get into where it's being pumped to go. On a fresh engine, these are normal numbers. As things loosen up and wear in (Bearings, mainly) pressure will subside a tad. You're not to the excessive point.

Your numbers aren't abnormal by any stretch. I'd stop worrying about the number and pick an oil and stick with it knowing what normal pressure range is using it. Changing to different oils constantly is another recipe for disaster.   ;)
