Atleast get the Motorcraft replacement. Try Rockauto.com
Also in one of the sections on FF there is a code for a discount. You type in on check-out.

I went with the motorcraft one when I got mine. Is any better? But Ford Genuine Parts are good to use just in case. They usually have a pretty good warranty.

I went with one from Autozone in my car. Seems to be holding up well so far and looks like the factory part. I needed one fast and couldn't wait on shipping. If you can wait then yea I say order the ford factory part and getting it from Rockauto it will probably beat the price I paid for mine at the store. They beat most prices on parts though sometimes it's better to just go to the store to save a few bucks if it's not that much of a price difference.

Yeah, I was at a point where it was the only way I had to get from A to B, so I had to go with what they could get quick. Just so happened that was a Motorcraft part.

Yea, im not in a huge hurry. Its been leaking slowly now for several months, but it is next on my to do list for this car... I work for a machine shop that gets parts 20-25% off from ford so I may just stick with motorcraft.

I would, unless you can find proof somewhere that going with a different brand would have a benefit.
