Default Hybrid intakE + drop in filter?

so i have a 05 rs and going to be installing the hybrid intake burrowed from this thread.
but its almost time for my new intake filter.
would it be better to get an aftermarket drop in filter or OEM replacement?

I'd say go for the OEM replacement. The aftermarket filter does not add a noticeable difference and I don't think it's worth the money. They're also known for letting more crud through.

also, the k/n and other oiled element filters can (and usually do) cause oil to get on the MAF sense wire which can do anything from cause very slight errors to frying the MAF sensor elememts. Bob the oil guy did a air filter comparison between every type of air filter i can think of, the oiled element ones by far let the most dirt through and the oil was all over the secondary filter used to see what the first filter missed. the OEM paper filter was the most effective with an unmeasurable loss of flow.
