If in doubt I favor the Motorcraft. Look alike may not perform alike~~ Depends on the parts and the price!!

I'll buy Motorcraft when I can afford it, but when faced with $35.10 for a BWD MAP sensor versus $145.00 or more for Motorcraft (Ford wanted $190 for it) I have trouble justifying the extra coins.

Tru- Tec is manufacterered by Standard Motor Products ( also make bwd). The Tru Tec is an average part that will meet eom specs. The branded Standard ( no T on end of part number) will be the premium part.
