I did a search and a couple of guys on here didn't like a couple of things.

1.) It supposedly screwed too far into the pan, therefore not allowing for a full drain.

2.) It stuck out far enough it was vulnerable to damage.

I am still considering it though.

I've had one on my 05 for 4 years. Love it, and not a single issue. If that's going to get knocked off by an object when your driving, there's a 90% or better chance you pan was going to get damaged anyway.

Out of curiosity, how / what do you seeing knocking it off?

I have had one on my 06 for 2-3 yrs now an love it. I probably don't get 100% of the oil drained but add the little bit to the HP oil and I don't see much difference.

Have one on my Evo, works great and hasn't ever been touched by road debris. (lowered as well)

I wouldn't really sweat the small bit of oil it would leave in the pan should the threads stick in to far, not like you'll ever get all the oil out durring a change anyways. (HPO system)

Doesn't the 6.7 already have a drain valve on the pan stock?

Had one on my 99 and 03, loved it. Now I don't see how it could work in the 6.7,, although it would be great if it did,,, you wouldn't get a bath in oil every time you changed it!
And it could be directed DOWN instead of BACK from the drain pan! LOL

NO, not a "Drain Valve",, it's plug comes out with about 3/4 of a turn is all, and it's like a fire hydrant when it drains,,, sheesh. POOOR Design if you ask me!

Fumoto valve with a hose on the end fixes the hydrant effect lol

I like the valve for oil changes, But mine has a leak, small drip right out of the center of it. It says something about double O ringed to prevent leaks, but I still see it.

I'm going on over 2+ years on this valve, I'm the second owner on this EX and the original owner had this same valve back then....no leaks and it still.works like a charm.
I love it!

My 2 cents.

09HD6.4,

Some of our work trucks have them installed, and of those are lower riding half tons, no issues so far. Some of those trucks drive to the rig 2 or 3 times a days. I have always heard good things about them, Im going to order one right now. I just did a search to find the name of the valve.

I like the idea but from all the dings and small dents in my oil pan from all the back roads and goat paths I drive on I would only trust it if it was made of SS as brass breaks to easy IMO.

I am a mechanic for the city of st. louis public buses and we have one on every bus on the road 600+ and have had no issues with them other than draining a 34 qt oil pan is a little slow LOL
