Okay, just checked with the manufacturer.
Unfortunately he can't make extra deep hex holes. Also he can't make it torx for a feasable price. So I decided to redesign the plug with a low profile outer hex head (13mm). The plug's head would be 2mm higher than OEM. Please see attached sketch. I'll get back to you guys when I received another offer....

endodoc - 40 pcs
RetardedTiming - 10 pcs
mordor - 20 pcs
Speedhaus - 30 pcs
Rogue - 10 pcs

I’d love to grab a set.

However,? I do have a dumb question. What is on the other side of the plugs (oil passages or coolant passages?)? In other words, do I have to drain or remove anything to replace the plugs?

Thanks.

Do you think much of a weight saving? Are the OEM heavy?
They look substantial from the image.

Ohh by the way I'm in for 1 set also.

The plugs hold the rocker arm shafts in place.

Okay. I just placed the order and payed for it. Production will take about 4 weeks. So you should get your plugs at the end of February :-)

endodoc - 40 pcs
RetardedTiming - 10 pcs
mordor - 20 pcs
Speedhaus - 30 pcs
Rogue - 10 pcs
irockidd - 10 pcs
able duc - 10 pcs
Brad51 - 10 pcs

@irockidd: Nope, you don't have to draing the engine. There's a bit of engine oil on the "other side" of the plug.
@able duc: OEM is not really heavy. You'd safe only a couple of grams. I'd say it's going to be weight neutral with installed safety wires/cables.
Thanks from mordor

I wasn't going to wire them is that OK? I haven't drilled any of my Ti bolts

Oops-a-daisy!
Requests for these plugs are more than expected.

endodoc - 40 pcs
RetardedTiming - 10 pcs
mordor - 20 pcs
Speedhaus - 30 pcs
Rogue - 10 pcs
irockidd - 10 pcs
able duc - 10 pcs
Brad51 - 10 pcs

AaronJ - 10 pcs (not guaranteed)
998sp - 10 pcs (not guaranteed)

@able duc: you don't have to wire them. OEMs are actually loctited (but I am not really a fan of glueing Ti bolts into Aluminium holes)
Thanks from AaronJ

I wouldn't use a titanium bolt in aluminum or titanium holes without Ti-Prep or something similar to prevent galling.
