Metal Roof vent pipe flashing

Putting on a new metal roof that has a 3" drain vent stack coming through. Is there a specific flashing boot that I can buy from the roofing company or can I use the one the local hardware store sells? How's it installed to prevent leaking, any tips are appreciated.

Check here. I like the first one for a DIY.

Lead flashing would be better, but requires an overlap in the field sheet.

I'd also vote for the lead boot, but it's a little trickier to install. Also, a little more detail on the product you're installing might sway my opinion. "Metal Roof" covers lots of variables.
