I don't think a magnet is needed, given our filter should catch it.

I just saw the Ronin one as well. I think it is a better design but the OEM plastic plugs are fairly cheap and they last long enough. I re-used my factory drain plug.

I like the UPR it is just like stock easy to maintenance with one o-ring but is bullet proof compared to stock plastic. I will wait to hear how Hootushead likes it.

Finally got the UPR plug installed tonight. Seems to fit like stock but, I’m going to keep a close eye on it for leaks for awhile. I will let you all know if I have any issues.

I can't justify the price honestly. I bought the Ronin Factory for mine so I don't have to worry about any more freaking messes. I can even connect a drain hose to it now and not have to remove the bottom cover anymore.

The Ronin plug is a nice design, but how many stock oil plugs could I buy before I reached the $80 point? Sure it makes oil changes easier, but it's too pricey for me to consider.

It was a big price but I got tired of waiting for fumoto and I got tired of the geyser that happens when you change our oil. Now I get nice controlled drain that's easy to manage. Thats worth it to me.

When was your fusion built? I don't have to remove the cover for the engine or PTU drains.

My MKZ rolled off the line on June 4th 2018. And I remove the bottom cover to make sure I don't get any oil on it. The oil plug sits right above it But I also don't have a deep open pan or bucket for the geyser of oil that comes out not to mention how messy to grab an oil sample.

I use a red mop bucket from Walmart to catch my oil it's taller then the old oil pan which are often low, gets me a few inches from the drain plug not a single drop on the ground and no need to remove shield.

Which Facebook group is that? I'm about yo use it for the first time actually. I need to drain a bit to get a sample out of it. The only thing I worry about is what Lincoln might say if they see it. Guess we'll find out soon lol.
