Default T65 Torx Bolt, Where to get it?

So after reading the write up at scoobymods on changing my MT oil (http://www.scoobymods.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1743), I decided to go ahead and change it today... much to my dismay the 21mm plug bolt that is referenced to in that write up is now a T65 Torx Bolt... problem is NOBODY HAS THEM. I went to OSH, Kraegon, Autozone, Pepboys, Harbor Freight, Tractor Supply and a few others and they only have T60. Even after a lot of online searching I cant seem to find what I need. Drats.

Good question. I don't think you can get that damn socket from anywhere but one of the aforementioned tool vans. Maybe it was to drive more people to the dealerships for service, or maybe the Subaru got a good deal on the bolts somewhere.

No, it is because the Hex plug had a large overhang/protrusion, and even with the UHMWPE skid plates it still caught and caused the pan sheetmetal to fold and eventually fail and leak. In choosing a recessed plug, they went for the less likely to strip but not too likely to pack with stuff and corrode. Hope this helps.

I realize this is an older post..but wanted to get my 2 cents in...
I know way back when the plug was 22mm? Lube shops were notorious for
draining the diff and sticking in 5 litres of engine oil in the engine..on auto boxes..so they went to the hex...and even marked the case next to the bolt "diff" and the dummies still drain it..just not as much!
