I done similar this past week end.  Blew an oil cooler on my TR3 in a 
qualifying race at the AUTOBAHN (Joliet) on Saturday.  Car was running like a 
Banshee.  I couldn't figure out why it was so bright and sunny in front of me, 
and so 
foggy in my mirrors.  Car was running great, albeit (eventually) about four 
quarts of oil down.  We by passed the oil cooler for the Sprint Race.  Again 
the car ran great, but by the end of the race I was reading twenty pounds of 
pressure.  Car still sounded GREAT.  

On Sunday morning when we started it up it still sounded great but we had 
zero oil pressure.  We're praying it is a faulty gauge or sending issue.  

I think I'll install an oil pressure light.
