    @LethalBlake

    Do you guys have an option for 15-17 gt I couldn't find it on the site. Just did my first oil change on my used gt and the nut is twisting and probably gonna get stuck in my socket permanently next change.

    Besides the magnetic tip, what is the benefit here? The body of the plug is still plastic if I am looking at it correctly.

    OK. The color of it was throwing me off.

    I have one and for only being a drain plug, I like it a lot. It's still as secure as the stock one, except the metal tabs are much much easier to get off, they wont break (the stock plugs are known to snap the tabs leaving you SOL trying to finish your oil change), and they're way hard to get off without yanking it unexpectedly and having oil gush everywhere.

    Plus this plug adds at least 10hp.

    Just buy a couple spare plastic ones from Ford. I broke my plug and had to get another and if was $1.97 at my local dealer. Bought 2 just in case.

    Had one of those on my previous car and bought one for the mustang but it sticks out way too far. Might break on a speed bump
