Looks like your talking about the 45* CAC boot. The OEM Ford boot is blue. Aftermarket can be any color of your choice.

Should I be concerned that it has been replaced. OASIS showed no warranty work... I'm just trying to make sure no major component was replaced and I didn't know.

No need to worry about the boot, usually the aftermarket ones are thicker and can with-stand more boost psi.

The concern is the CCV, oily gasses get pushed thru the CAC system and cause oil puddling in the CAC system. The oil can slowly deteriorate the boots and make them weak, this causes blow outs or rips.

It would be like worrying why the original tires wernt still on it. They need replacing after time.

agreed, cac boots need serviced as regular maintenance, especially the hot side boots, they expand and contract under the varying pressure of the turbo not to mention getting saturated in oil.
