transmission drain tool

Hey guys, does anyone have the anti-tamper 16mm triple square tool to drain the transmission that they could loan me?

Also, I have the ims bearing tool set that I'm now done with if anybody needs it. I'd just ask that u pay for shipping. Or be local, that would work too. Haha, I'm just kidding, nobody's local since I'm the only one that lives in this God forsaken place.

Look on the bright side.
You are the only guy with a Porsche in town
I'll go check my triple squer set. See if I got 16mm.
I have a 6 speed trans so when I did mine, I used an Allen socket.

Got it.
By the way, this is the set I have. Very good quality, for a resneble price.
Neiko 10-Piece XZN Triple Square Spline Bit Socket Set, Quality S2 XZN Bits - Amazon.com
Coming to think of it, shipping the socket will cost yo what, 10$ each way?
You might be better off buying this set.
Anyway, I have it, and can ship it to you tomorrow morning.
PM me your address if you want it.

On second thought, this is kind of dumb... I'm going to just go ahead and drill out that anti tamper stem. Doesn't make any sense. Maybe some where along the way, I'll drop the $15 on a legit magnetic drain plug but I don't see that it makes any sense letting it hold up the build at this point. Especially since I plan on pulling the transmission again next winter to fabricate a fixture to go after the rear linkage seal. Thanks for the offers tho, guys!

Also, I do have a dude that's borrowing the ims tool so its no longer available until he's done. It'll be dropped off at the post office today.

Not worth the cost of shipping the triple square socket both ways. You can get the socket in BluePoint for about $10. Just flag down the next Snap-On truck you see.

I got mine at the local no name auto parts store. $6. It said it was for VW cars. But 16mm T S is all that matters.

Really? I couldn't find one. What store did you go to? Plus my plug is the anti tamper with the nub in the middle. Like I said though, worse case scenario is I have to drill that out.

Gabe's Auto Parts in Nampa. Ask for Thane. Google for the number. Yes mine is the security with the nub hole. Isn't that the same as triple square ?
