    Anyone have a clue what the oil drain plug thread pattern is?
    Id like to replace mine with a magnetic one since I've got about 280k miles I figured I should keep an eye for metal shavings in the oil.

    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure that the factory drain plugs already have a small magnet on them.

    Mine may not be factory, because I'm certain it does not have a magnet.

    The magnetic drain plug was a luxury option you had to select from the dealer, not a default option. Kinda like the early sbc that had oil filters as an option.

    That makes sense. I know that I've seen a lot of them.
