Is it true that I should now only be trying modems that are pulled off of 4.0.4 now? If so, how can I reinstall the factory modem that came with the update? Over at XDA they are not showing the modem that matches my baseband: BULP8.

So which modem should I use now if I cant reinstall the modem that came with this update?

There is no such thing as, "the best modem". It depends entirely on your location, operator and signal strength. The latest modem may not be the best for you,
The latest firmware for North American/Canadian GT-i9100's is Android 4.0.3 which contains the UGLD3 modem. If, for whatever reason, this is no longer performing as expected, you can either revert back to Android 4.0.3 or its just a case of starting from scratch to see which modem works best for you.

As for re-installing the modem that came with your updated firmware, just Google which modem it was and flash it as per post #1.
