Has anyone done this? Both are 14x1.5 mm 12 mm long with 17 mm hex head. I like the oem magnetic plug as the magnet is recessed instead of sticking out. Why didn't the manufacturer use a magnet engine oil drain plug? Did the engineers want the debris to go to the oil filter and get trapped? Remember the drive shaft lube does not have a filter and thus a magnet plug is needed. Would using the magnetic plug in the oil pan be beneficial or detrimental?
