I would first get the oil pressure tested before you take it anywhere, if you don't have a test gauge try and borrow one, you only need to remove the oil pressure sender and screw in the test gauge there and post cold idle hot idle and hot @ 1200 RPM that is only if cold idle pressure is ok, let me know what you find, if the pressure is way to high the pressure relief valve is stuck any you can blow out rear main and front seals.
