Default Valve Cover size (1.6)

What his the dimension of the plug opening on the 1.6L valve cover?

****, I meant to measure that for Y8s when I was at my dad's today and I totally forgot.

If no one does it by the 10th, I'll make sure to do it at our "tech day".

I've got a caliper, but mine's a 1.8 99. I'll measure it if you want, but I don't know if they're the same
