This Short Ram Intake

I say the first one because you can convert it to either short ram or cold air.

a drop in filter is a filter that goes into your stock air box. it a screen that gets "dropped in" instead of clamped on like on a cai

The CAI one doesn't look like it has a place for the sensor to go on the intake tube. Just seems like there are vacuum nips on there. The short ram one looks better imo.
