Thanks, JR. To answer my own question: I got in touch with both Rick's and Electrosport. Rick's reports that their stator is a straight OEM replacement, with no expectation of higher output or durability. Electrosport claims 15% higher output (they downplay this, but to me it sounds like a big deal -- one more piece of heated gear!) and that their version runs cooler than OEM due to higher-quality copper.
