There's no such thing as a drop-in nut. The original nut needs to be carefully and surgically removed, and the new one properly fitted and slotted, all by a skilled luthier. Otherwise it will look like a beaver has been gnawing on your nut slot, and your action and intonation will likely be worse.
Because you used the term "drop in", your post kind of implied that this is a do-it-yourself operation. It's not. It requires skill, experience, and some expensive tools.
I would never discourage anyone from learning how to work on their own guitars, but it's wise to practice on cheap instruments. I've seen lots of good guitars that have been hacked on and practically ruined by unskilled do-it -yourselfers. I would like to advise anyone reading this not to be one of those people. A good guitar deserves to be worked on by a skilled craftsman.
