I'm curious about the above.

That said, you have multiple, semi-labor intensive locations that need a new gasket and a reseal. It's not extremely high of a price, but the labor hours are probably around 10-15. I would shop for an independent shop's quotes on the RMS, but definitely replace the PCV if this is your first time hearing about it, and ever doing it. I honestly would change my PCV out at the same interval as my sparkplugs at this point.
I got it new back in 2010 and it has 88k miles...never. No mods.

Def go OEM, the aftermarket ones suck and can blow quickly

Yeah I had one of those cheap "Prexa" ones from DAP and it died after a couple thousand miles.

Heres what ive found to be the cheapest OEM one online with the latest AH model revision from an ebay seller. Looks to be legit, with the legit box, green gasket, red plunger and all the correct markings on it. He has 5 left for sale $120 shipped.

no no no not going to work. Thats meant to swell up like rubber orings and stuff and Its still kind of gimmicky despite what you might read online. If the cam cover is leaking its from the RTV like seal which that wont do anything to. If the upper timing cover is leaking its a thick rubber gasket that that probably wont do anything too.
