Has anyone added an oil pressure gauge to their Touareg?

Just curious, with all the issues known with these engines Im surprised there aren't more people who've already added oil pressure gauges to their Touaregs.

I was thinking about T-ing off the factory pressure sensor and installing a simple single gauge pod.

Anyone have any insight?

I haven't looked, but is it available as an OBDII readout?

I thought it was and I have a digital gauge heads up display, no oil pressure output. At least with the software I'm using at least.

I'd rather have oil pressure readout than the oil pressure temp display that my dash has. I'm not sure why oil temp is seemingly more important than pressure.

Scan Gauge is really popular with the hybrid crowd. I've never looked into it for my VWs, though.
