Intercooler Hose Blew off...

Yesterday evening my intercooler hose blew off. I've been told that once this happens the rubber connector is streched and should be replaced. Ford wants $50 for a new rubber boot. Is there any good or better aftermarket boots out there? I figured that the factory ones have lasted for 195,000 miles so I might as well just change all four of them at the same time. Thanks for your suggestion and help.

Twice I've had my turbo hose blow off, the first time I bought a new hose and it lasted a year or two then blew again. This time I just sprayed the end of the hose and the end of the turbo with starting fluid to dissolve the oil buildup and reinstalled it, It has been fine for another year so far.

Most of the time the hose blows off due to the buildup of oil from the CCV system, it makes the hoses slipery.
