Default How important is Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor selection?

Watched an instructional video on YouTube explaining how to replace the Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor. At the end of the video, he explained that you “need to be careful when selecting an FRP sensor, as you may be tempted to go with a cheap aftermarket alternative which will lead to problems down the road”

I’m seeing an FRP sensor labeled “Actual OE” for $35 on Rockauto. The WELLS alternative is $78. Autozone wants $119 for the Duralast FRP sensor. Edit: Now CARiD has one for $16 that looks identical.

They all look to be the exact same part- unless the website is just using the same photos over for convenience. Is this something I can look to save money on? Or will it actually mess up my vehicle.


Edit: Car is 2005 Grand Marquis LS if that helps the answer at all
