Do you want a rough universal guess?

Oil pressure hot = 40
Oil pressure cold = 70

Volts at idle = 13.5

I don't know about the 3800 specifically.

I have a 3800SC with about 90k on it.

Volts with new battery last year were like 14.5, but have dropped to 14.

Oil at startup is high but once warmed in the summer drops to 10 at idle.

In the winter it is higher.
