Why is the oil pressure low in the head (25lbs wot, 15-20 idle) while the block is much higher?

well, lets see, oil pressure in the head shouldnt be much at all. since you have an oil pump in the pan, thats where the lower oil pressure being higher is. the oil is then sent up to the head where it loses pressure by the time it gets there. you dont want a lot of pressure in the head anyway. unless ya like a lot of smoke coming out the exhaust...lol
