Need a dimarzio pickup similar to duncan distortion

Hi all -

Long story short, i have always used a duncan distortion in the bridge paired with a dimarzio air norton in the neck. Just bought an Ibanez RG2620 (H-H, basswood body, rosewood neck, edge pro trem) and was going to swap in my favorite combo when i realized that the duncan's baseplate doesn't fit! So this gives me an opportunity to try something new (plus i sold the distortion already).

So what do you suggest. Playing thru a peavey bravo and use the bridge for thrash rhythms ala old school metallica, testament, 80's metal.
I really like the duncan distortion so something along those lines but with dimarzio. Maybe a d-activator or dominion?

Thanks

jeff

Thanks! Guess the Dominion it is!

Since I'm asking, I've always wanted to try the Liquifire. how does it stack against the air norton?

thanks everyone!
