Exclamation Starter ? on a 2003 truck..

I have a 2003 7.3 and from what I have read so far these have the newer high torque starters from ford. I'm looking to upgrade my starter because mine seems to be on the slow side of starting my truck. I have read several post on DB high torque starters and I have used DB before on Jet Skis and Boats and really have nothing good to say about them, other than you will need the 1 yr warranty. 4 starters I bought from them have all been replaced. So that leaves Powermaster 9051 and Mean Green. Powermaster having a better price but not too many reviews anywhere I can find. Mean Green is suspose to be a very very good starter but its $$$$..

So my question is, My 2003 starter is suspose to be a high torque already so would a aftermarket starter really make a differance or should I just buy a NEW factory Starter that has lasted 10 yrs and 100k miles..
Would a New factory starter turn my truck faster than my old one? or would spending the few extra $$ on a powermaster or mean green be the way?
