Drop in filter?

Which one are people using? I was thinking of a MS stage two but it appears a drop in may be the way to go.

Active is a good choice, they come in both dry, and oiled. I personally like the dry filter, easier to maintain, and you get an increase of 50% airflow over the stock filters. The oiled have 75% better airflow, but you need to make sure you're on top of cleaning and re-oiling them properly.

The website does list a drop down box that includes two options:
1. Production up to Sept 09
2. Oct 09 to Present

This may be why your confirmation has that info.

I have a BMC... I dont think a simple airfilter would get you much HP nor would you feel the difference... There were a few forums here where people were happy with BMC so I got one of those on Amazon for really cheap.....
