Brand new 5w30 should be higher than 8-10 psi @ hot idle.

With the new oil, I think I have pretty much ruled out oil dilution and shearing.
if the two oils mixed and the gtx didnt like the residual rediline in the engine...then yes, that could cause it

My suggestion would be to change the oil and filter again and see if that fixes the issue...that would eliminate that as possible
