2.5NA oil pressure gauge range

I will be adding a VDO oil pressure gauge to my 90. What range is appropriate for this engine; 0-80 or 0-100? Based on my Series, I guess it is the 80, but wanted to confirm.

thank you.

From the workshop manual (which you should probably download).

Thanks, I have the manuals but was wondering more about the peak cold pressures so I am not pegging the gauge.

My SIII (~70k miles, new oil pressure pump) operates towards the higher end of the 2000rpm manual spec but only peaks at ~80psi or so (cold engine, higher revs) whereas my TR6 (~40k miles) has cruise pressure roughly the same as the Rovers but will push >100psi cold if I m not careful. Granted the SIII has the famously accurate OE electric gauge (rebuilt, new sender) and the TR6 is mechanical.....
