American Deluxe (HSS) pick up replacement question....

Hi guys. I just grabbed myself a 2010 AD HSS strat which I'm totally loving EXCEPT the stock HB which sounds kinda screechy to me. I've been eye-balling the SD pearly gates trembucker with the nickel cover but I'm finding a lot of conflicting info online about complications regarding hole size in the stock pick guard and the mounting screw config that Seymour uses. I was hoping to just pop it in and not have to go through the hassle of ordering a new pick guard and transferring all the electronics etc...
Can someone set me straight?

I swapped the pickups in my American Deluxe HSS with a pair of Custom Shop 69s, a Pearly Gates Plus (no cover) and an RS electronics kit. I had to drill one screw hole for the humbucker to get it to fit. It does not look like there would be room for the cover without modification of the pickguard on mine.

The cover will not fit, just went through this with a 14' strat, it's the rounded corners. New p/g or no cover.

Pickguard swap shouldn't take long, though, half hour at the most.
