    02 ford explorer 200,000 miles needs intake manifold. have put a band-aid with high temp sealant at site of anti-freeze leak causing #5 plug misfire but it is time to replace. Have not yet made decision on OEM from dealer 380 bucks vs aftermarket ranging 220-280. any and all opinions welcome, solid running vehicle transmission rebuilt 20 thousand miles ago. leaning for cheaper but can be talked out of it,… have a good day.

    JMHO …
    If your planning on running the vehicle to the grave, if it’s in decent shape.
    I’d go with the OEM.
    The old saying … “you get what you pay for” comes to mind.
    Not to say if the aftermarket unit has a fitment issue and you end up having to to the job twice.
    Again just my opinion.
