1993 - 240 Valve Hushers - Should I Cheap out? 200

I'm about to R&R the Timing Belt on a 1993 240. The last time I did one, I also replaced the Camshaft Follower Dampers (aka, Valve Hushers).

At that time I used Volvo OE Hushers, but I notice I can get aftermarket Hushers ( Branded Victor Reinz) from FCP for 47 cents a pop while the Volvo Hushers are $3.58 apiece.

So, has anyone used these bargain basement Hushers without complaint?

Both the OE and the Reinz parts are listed as "made in Italy", if that means anything.

I look for bargains, but I also consider equivalency. For example, I have a stockpile of Volvo OE Rear Crank Seals because I was buying the cheaper Elring seals until they started coming from China. Those seemed to be of such a high durometer I couldn't bring myself to use them - used only OE Volvo after that.

Any input will be appreciated.

Thanks, one and all,
Rich (from The Burgh)
