6.7 diesel work in Atlanta?

I just purchased a 2012 F-250 and noticed there is no oil pressure gauge. How stupid is that? I have seen advertisers advertise a pillar pods where you can add gauges for the 6.7 powerstroke but I do not know anywhere in the Atlanta area who can install them. Any help would be appreciated.

There is an oil pressure sensor. Your truck has built in safety features. Your injectors and etc aren't run by oil pressure like 6.0's and 7.3s so there isn't really a need for an oil pressure gauge. That's why its not that stupid

Thinking about getting rid of the stock 6.7 turbo?
Check this out... and research before buying

I can check with edge and verify that the cts monitor will show oil pressure.
That would be a very easy install you could do yourself.

There is also the edge ct which is about 80 dollars less.
It is not a touch screen and can only display 4 guages.

Its actually the Edge CS (color screen whereas CTS stands for color touch screen)
And the CS can display 8 parameters as well, just on a screen too small to see all of them

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

Great, thanks for the help. I was looking at getting the Pillar Pods and add the guages there. I am used to keeping an eye on oil pressure so it surprised me that there was not a guage to monitor. Any one know of a place in the Atlanta area that works on the 6.7 other than the dealership?
