92 vx honda distributor replacement - OEM or After?

My distributor needs replacing on my vx. Should I stick with OEM on this part or should I go with an aftermarket one? I'm not sure if one would be better than the other for reliability and efficiency. Granted the OEM ones are quite expensive. What are your thoughts on OEM vs. After market for this part?

This is the part number: 30100-P08-006

When I replaced the dist. on my HX I opted for one from Advance Auto. The ones from Oreilly, Autozone, etc. will pretty much all be the same. I've been running it for the last 40,000+ miles with no issues to report. I think it's safe to save a little money and go with a non-OEM replacement part.

I ended up finding an OEM one for a good price.

I have an aftermarket cap on my car and on my old VX as well that I still do repair work on, they have 40,000 and 80,000 on them without issue, after 70,000 miles or so I did scrape off the oxide on the contacts of the cap to get rid of a miss fire but it hasn't come back, if it does then $25 to buy a new after market cap is all I need to do.
