Does anyone have insight into the quality of the integrated PCV valve in the OEM valve cover versus an aftermarket one? Is it worth it to pay $100+ for the OEM cover and valve over aftermarket?

Lastly, does anyone know if a third-party manufacturer makes and rebrands the OEM part?

Thanks, all!

Bought a non-OEM valve cover at rock auto for 250ish (Had to replace it at 65K miles along with the rear main seal). I have had no problems with it.
