Odd Oil issue

I take my car over (Insert Fast Speed Here) ((happy?)) mph often... I just installed a 2.3L motor about 3 months ago.. no issues till recently I am getting a engine oil lite flickering after I abuse the engine, but there is plenty of oil and oil pump seems to be working fine.. no shavings or anything.. Wondering it engine pressure has something to do with it, installed a Valve cover filter and killed the vent line to intake, since at these high speeds I was sucking oil out into the intake and killed a motor. Doing a BSD in the next few months to get more oil in motor. need to locate a oil baffle. So does anyone know the relationship of the oil pressure switch and the motor with this 2.3L?

Light flickers at idle, on braking, when under load, no issues, when not abused no issues.. I assume just get a Real Pressure gauge and find out the real deal, anyone install one yet?
