Help Fernandes Sustainer installation


I bought the Fernandes Sustainer FSK101 Kit, I want to put it on my RG321, the guitar have 2 humbuckers and a 5-way switch, the included installation guide its for a HSH with 5-way switch and I can't find the proper diagram for a guitar like mine. My RG have a DiMarzio's Steve Special on the bridge position, I would like install the same 5-way switch but the fernandes driver only have 3 cables, so I don't think the driver don't work in coil tap, am I wrong? If the driver doesn't work with the coil tap positions the only way to make it work with the DiMarzio is install a 3-way switch?

I did some research and found that the control plate of the 101 is the same as the 401, but the 101 doesn't have the Mixer mode pot included, but you can install it anyway, so what is the correct pot that I have to buy? 500k, 250k? I need a capacitor?

Sorry for the very technical questions, I have a very professional luthier here in venezuela, to make all the routes on the guitar, he is good with wood but not with the electronics.

Thanks and sorry for my bad english!
