Try dieselsite.com. Look on the left side under categories and go to "hoses, boots & clamps". They have em.

You can also check detroit flexible metal hose if you are doing aftermarket stuff. I have been to their store and they carry a ton of silicone rubber boots.

That's the issue, silicone, with the CCV pushing oil vapor into the IC, there is oil that puddles up on the inside of the boots. Silicone and oil don't mix, it eventually destroys the boots and you got to replace them again.

If you're looking to replace your OE boots, then BD Diesel offers a direct replacement kit which is fairly nice. I have them on my 6.0 and they run under $200 iirc.

Try siliconeintakes dot com. Great prices and they'll have what you are looking for. My stock silicone boots have lasted 5.5 years. If I need to replace the next set in 5 or 6 years so be it.

Buy new silicone boots and do the CCV mod. Even if you buy the Stealth CCV kit and new stock ford boots from Tousley Ford, you're still spending less than most of the aftermarket boot kits and you're removing the oil from the intake.
