12-14 psi for laquer paints on lexan, thin about 50% laquer thinner *
many different things have been listed for thinning, like 4o9 cleaner, acetone?
60 - 80 psi for acrylics. not sure on the thinning ratio, or what to thin with.
Dont know yet for oil enamel, I have been using about 28 psi and I dont think it is quite right. Of course, it could be me since I am new.
Thin enamel about 40% paint thinner. Havent seen anything saying exactly what psi to spray with.
This info came from several sources, like the testors airbrush thinner bottle for example. If anyone wants to chime in, feel free! I am sure some of you know better. It would be nice to have a clear list for these.

In my case I use 20-22 for lacquers, 22-25 for enamels and 25-30 for primers.
