Wind tunnel corner vanes, loss coefficient

sorry for quite a silly and long question.
Recently, I have solved an 90° elbow, with corner vanes in it, and I would like to get a loss coefficient of that elbow.
inlet: velociy inlet, outlet: outflow, walls: with roughness specified
Loss coeficient is defined as K=(p_in-p_out)/dynamic_presure
How do I get the pressure drop? So should I substract outlet pressure value from inlet pressure value? Static or total? Is that so simple?
static pressure in= -23Pa
total pressure in = 792Pa
static pressure out = -149Pa
total pressure out = 667Pa
Pressure drop in both cases (static and total) 126Pa??? Is that right? (are these values the same, only because the velocity throught vanes almost didn't change?)
A what about operating pressure? Is it important when counting pressure drop? I set operation pressure 101325Pa a placed its coordinates out of geometry, but when I change the coordinates, pressure values changes but the difference remains the same.
