I remember when Scotty first posted this. It is impressive and it looks better than the Fumoto. But, I already have the Fumoto, I have a belly panel so it will not get hit by rocks and a plastic line on the nipple and I am in business. Were I starting now I would get this one. It looks great. Thanks for posting this.

You can go directly to the website. 34.99 with free shipping. Not too bad considering the construction of the thing. I may pull the trigger.

Scotty is entertaining. I noticed that the faster he talks, the more his arms and hands flap. I expect him to "take off" one of these days.

My Fumoto valve has worked right for over 400K miles, I think I'll stay with that.

+1. I prefer the Fumoto. Why have an extra part that you have to track down? I've never heard of the valve being accidently opened on a Fumoto. Has anybody? The threads on the new one also look shorter. No, thanks.

It's not a hassle if you do it yourself, and if you're careful with the torque. Many $350 oil pans have been ruined by monkeys at oil change places. I really like the idea that I will never have to touch those expensive threads again. Also, it's a lot less messy!

Solid point. I have heard these oil pans strip out rather easy
