spyder boots & intercooler pipe boots

I was doing the DIY intake mod and noticed that all my intercooler boots are oily,dirt stuck all over them and so are the spider boots at the bottom. I removed them, the clamps where pretty loose, 1/4 inch ratchet very little effort. My question is, should I replace all of these boots or just clean them up and reinstall them. IF they need replaced should I go to a dealership to buy them, or does somebody make aftermarket ones that are better?

Clean them up a bit and see if there are any cracks. I would personally go aftermarket. There a multiple vendors on here that sell them. When I replaced a cracked one it was way to much $$ at Ford.

To help keep them clean, to some research on the CCV mod.

Im sure the guys will chime in with more links. Good luck!

If you reuse them spray the pipes with a cheap hair spray, that way they wont blow off.
