I bought a CNC plug from either amazon or ebay.
Dont remember which. Much easier to work with over the stock drain plug, and only 10 bucks.
Yep, I've got one on order.

Take a chisel and a hammer, put the chisel on the outer edge at an angle so when you strike it it will unscrew the plug, and hit the chisel with the hammer. The plug will come loose and be easily removed. At least it did for me when all other methods failed.
Manuel specs 32 foot lb for drain plug. Use a new o-ring and 25 FP Works.

Yessir, that's the plan when I have the new plug in hand.

32?! Good god, no wonder it won't break free! I don't think I've ever torqued one down before. I've always just tightened it down until the O-ring deals, then nip it up maybe a 1/4 turn. Maybe 20lb at most.
