Do you have a part # on the 06+ dip stick tube?
I would totally buy a Killerbmotorsport pickup if it was around $100 (which is still 4-5x higher then factory), but at $200 it's a tough buy.
This should be the part number for 06+ dipstick: 15144AA011
If you think $200 is a tough buy then you'd definitly not be happy about having to replace the shortblock (and more). It's cheap insurance if you look at it that way, and something you NEVER have to worry about again. I wish I could sell them for less, but it's a VERY robust design with features no one else offers and I wouldn't make any money selling them for $100. Pictures don't do the part justice. Hold one in your hands and it becomes immediately undestood that you can tow you car with this part.
And if cost is THAT much of an issue (you're not the only one that's cheap on here) I'll tell you what I tell them. Replace the OEM pickup every 26K miles and you'll be set. I have no documented failures before then and at ~$20 a pickup you can do it many times over the life of the car and spend less than the cost of my ultimate pickup.
