Default Water pump: Bosch or OEM?

Gathering all I need for my clutch/timing belt/cams replacement:
- Gates timing belt kit
- Exedy KSB04 clutch
- Delta 1000 cams


I was set on getting an OEM water pump from SubaruGenuineParts for 73$, but there are some Bosch water pumps for 50$ on Amazon...

Am I better off with the OEM for 20$ more, or is the bosch a better choice?

is the Bosch a direct factory replacement?

Either way, both are reputable names imo.
