You're going to have to route the trem cavity in order to make enough space for the zr.

I woulds tick with the Edge or similar). Seems to me to be the path of least resistance.

I have done some similar, I modded my RG550 (used to be a RG560 with a Lo Pro Edge) with a ZR1.

If you don't know how to use tools or it will be you first time, its not worth running your guitar.

And yes, the ZR is better,
