I put in some stop smoke/leak awhile back and noticed my oil pressure reads much higher now. used to be about 50-60 when getting on it, now it reads more like 75. Once it gets warm it goes down to about 25 at idle and maybe 70 when at hig rev?

Stop smoke is basically very high viscosity oil thickener, which is why your pressure is higher. Not a problem except in cold weather, it will take longer to circulate the oil.
