Glad you got it done. The only thing I can think of is that the quality of your Torx bit is in question.

Now heres for my experience with ECS magnetic drain plug. It leaked. Just double check under there after a few hundred miles to make sure you arent leaking.

Did you use a new crush washer or the one that came from ECS? Leaking drain plug what a pain in the arse.

I used the new washer that came with the plug as well, but will definitely be on the lookout for leaks. Here's hoping for no leaks.

No oil pan bolt??

I use the m14 crush washers with the rubber neoprene lip on the inner diameter of the washer from autozone. They ensure a good seal and I've never had an issue. I change every 3k anyway so the rubber doesn't have to last beyond that.
