its a way of monitoring the engine, i never liked a car w/o 1. the idiot light in ours is set to come on at about 4psi...if it gets down to that sadly, your engine is likely done, no matter how quick you stop. it can also help detect that your low on oil (lower than normal oil pressures than your used to seeing)....i wanted 1 in the car from day 1 and finally last wk i finished the install on it (had to spread it out over 2wks). so when i go up to the burnout box or the line to make a run and i see low or flucuating oil psi, i'll abort and find out whats wrong instead of leavin parts of my engine all over the track and out the exh.

hope this helps
