What doorman products should I stay away from ?

I looking at replacing a few parts here and there on my truck and I am looking at OEM and realizing I may need a second job so I am looking for your guys experience and help to figure out what parts I must use OEM and what parts I can use doorman or other after market parts. My truck is not used as a daily drive and is used mostly as a weekend warrior pulling a boat around the Pacific Northwest lakes.

I have asked the ford dealer sponsor on here for a few parts but would also like to try and save a few bucks where I can so I can buy a few toys for the truck later like a chip and billett wheel.

Thanks for any and all help.

I was looking at the up pipes, valve cover gaskets and possibly exhaust manifolds.

Thanks

Up pipes are ok from Dorman. Gaskets you should get from sunrise. Exhaust manifolds eBay. Why do you need manifolds.

I used to buy their stuff but then the oil cooler issue /gasket problems / WTF happened ? I even heard of problems with their packaged bolts

seems like everything they dabble in is a potential problem

I can get Ford OEM parts at cost and i Live in Monroe, Work in Issaquah. Let me know if you want a price check.

Sensors and what not, go OEM. Up-pipes I prefer International cause the name is cool. No idea if other brands are less quality but International is proven and mine work well and instillation was easy.

Valve cover gaskets, Riffraff has good deals.

My manifolds look pretty rusted and I thought I would just look into new ones because I am going to install new up pipes soon.

I would like to go international but the price is a little (ok a lot)out of my budget I just want to keep the truck going as it has 418000 miles so I want to try and save my money for the big items like tranny and possible rebuild. So if I can get some good deals and or use aftermarket parts here and there then I will.

Thanks again for all the info guys.

I'd sell you my obs manifolds but they won't fit. eBay should have the best buy. There is no need to buy new. If they are not rusted to bad just sand blast them and then use header paint

if they don't leak i wouldn't both pulling them. clean them and paint if you want

dormant up pipes seem to be better quality now. only 170 from rock auto.

the valve cover gaskets only need replacement if the leak (very rare) or the uvch shorts and melts the gasket, otherwise don't bother replacing the gaskets.

the uvch can be had from dieselorings for only 40 a piece oem parts too!
