Default Drain plug thread size???

Does anybody know the thread size of the drain plug on my 01 2.5RS? I need to find an adaptor for my AUtometer oil temp sender. Thanks.

I wouldn't take the temp from the oil pan...take it from the block.

If you look at the block, directly in front of the oil pan, there are 2 12mm allen bolts approx. 4-5 inches apart. They have the same thread as the oil pan, but the reading will be much more accurate, and won't fluctuate as much. I found that mine would cool down when the car was moving and there was airflow over the sensor and front of the oil pan, then shoot back up when I stopped moving.

I had the Subaru preformance pakage that had it. That's where my sender came from. Sorry, but I don't know the thread pattern for it AN-8 sounds familar...but I'm only about 50% positive about that.
