Ok to use EGR from Autozone/O'Reilly/NAPA?
 
I was just browsing the parts stores and see that the price of their EGR's are $40 where the OEM one is about $85-90. Has anyone used the EGR and PCV valves from these parts stores? Any issues? I can't imagine that there is that much going on in the EGR to warrant only going with the OEM replacement.

I've been using EGR and PCV from Autozone for about ~15K without issue so far.

I'm using an EGR from Advanced also, and works great. Using PCV and MAP sensor from Rockauto, both about $23, versus the rip off dealer prices at 3x those.
When replacing the EGR, remove the top bolt (drivers side) slightly loosen the lower bolt, then rotate the EGR to the left all the way. The lower bolt is now easy to get to and will clear the alternator with no problem.
