Replacement Intercooler Boots WITHOUT CCV mod

Hey guys, I noticed today I have a nice tear in my cold-side intercooler boot. The ford dealer wants $72.00 for the one boot! I have seen silicone boots for around $30, but they're not compatible with oil. I don't know that I want to do the CCV mod... so what are my options for replacement?

Intercooler Pipe Fabrication - Silicone Intake Systems Auto Parts

I"ve ordered a lenth of hose from these guys, and made my intercooler to pipe connection. Yea, the price ford wants is way out of line...in my opinion.

The CCV mod is a great! The one Stealth Automotive sales is actually desighned and built by NChornet (Kevin)

The factory boots are not compatable with oil either, that's why they don't last very long!

So what you're saying is, if I were to replace the factory boot with an aftermarket silicone one, it would hold up about as well as the factory boot. Or thats the idea anyway. 10-4. Thanks for the input!

Yea the aftermarket ones DON'T leak or absorb the oil. So they really are better.
