If you are without your truck and you need it, I wouldn't hesitate to use the one from O'Reilly's. If it were me though I'd probably go ahead and order the OEM ford part for $15 and swap it out when it comes in. Then, put the O'Reilly's part in your glove box as a spare.
The new OEM part is re-designed and is expected to be more durable. Seeing as though it just came out, I would tend to believe that the O'Reilly part is probably based on the old design. Therefore, you might view it as a knock-off of a part where even the OEM version wasn't particularly good.
Also, is the O'Reilly's part cheaper than getting one from your local Ford dealer or International? You could just go that route. The Ford dealer might even have the new CPS in stock. If so, I bet the price is cheaper than the older-style one at O'Reilly's. Ford lowered their price dramatically on the new part.
Holy crap!!! When did these get so cheap??? I remember E-bay for 75, 80, even $90 and it being a good deal....
Did I miss something???

Where have you been Moose?
Ford came out with the new CPS a couple months back, the new part is the same number as the old one but it ends in B not A and they cost around $30 at the stealership. However our good friend Bob at powerstrokeshop.com is selling them for $15.27 IIRC. So welcome back, now order you a new and improved CPS.
