You could probably get it with a box end wrench. Use another bolt somewhere and do some practice with your torque wrench and the box end to get an idea of what 18 lbft feels like on the box end.

Just make sure to get all 4 bolts the same. Then recheck them when the Motion Pro wrench adapter gets to you.

Not that I recommend it but I'll be the first to admit that I torqued the cylinder down on my KDX with my internal torque sensor and a box end wrench since I don't have an adapter. No issues. I don't concern myself about it. I normally torque everything carefully on an any engine or suspension part. Just go in a few increments and tighten evenly. I've done hundreds of V8 intake manifolds with inaccessable bolts like this. Shouldn't have a problem if you've got a feel for it.
