Just replaced my OP sensor in my 2011 sti as it was leaking. This new sensor is causing oil pressure light to flicker at idle. Anyone know at what oil pressure PSI the light comes on? I doubt it would be a faulty sensor so I'm assuming my next step is to test the oil pressure myself with a gauge

Thanks

It's a pressure switch, not a sensor; there is no feedback to the ECU. The switch turns the light on at anything lower than 2.1psi. If I were you, I'd go to AutoZone and grab a $15 mechanical gauge to double check the health of the lubrication system. A flicker at idle is generally not a good thing. I would not drive the car until you know for sure what's going on with it.
