Turbo inlet silicone choice

I am going to replace the turbo inlet hose on my 03 WRX.

I wanted the Samco piece but it's over 300 bucks, so I found these choices. Looking for opinions, which have the possibility of being installed without removing the intake manifold.

Thanks for any input you could provide.

I got the Perrin one and it was a pretty painless install. A couple of handtools and about two or three beers. It really is easy engine work for the novice and $200 is definitely kinda high.

Perring also includes great instructions.
