Why not just use a metal strap wrench (with a rubber handle)? I've been using a Plough for at least 15 years now across 4 vehicles. It's a one-size-fits-all solution. Normally these kinds of solutions don't work very well, but this is an exception - and you won't have to buy another wrench or socket for your next vehicle (or confuse multiple sockets when you go to use them ... its bad enough that these manufacturers can't at least settle on a standard oil plug bolt head size).
Because the I-4 does not use a can filter, it uses a cartridge filter. The plastic lid does not lend itself to a strap wrench.
