Should I get OEM or aftermarket intercooler boots

Still under warranty but the boot from the turbo to the intercooler pipe is cracked. Should I get OEM replacement or aftermarket replacement.

My OEM boot lasted 200,000 miles and I bought the replacement from Ford for $79. My lower intercooler boot is still factory with 210,000 miles and counting.

I know everyone says factory boots are crap - but 200,000 miles?

I have the dieselsite boots and would never go back to the OEM's. I got them with the clamp rings, they are not going to blow off any time soon!

By the way, why does that little tiny short piece of hose cost so much. At the price they want it's about $200.00 per foot. That's insane!!!!

Why do you like the diesel site boots? Aren't they twice as much? Paid $55.00 for a new OEM boot this morning (Listed at $66.00).
