Strat with EMG 60....

Strat with EMG 60....
with two passive single coils  
I was thinking of trying to wire the EMG 60 completely separate from the two single coils. I want to use the 250K volume pot with the two single coils. I want to ditch the two tone pots that go with that stock circuit. I want to hook up the EMG 60 with its 25K volume and 25K tone. (So, I'll have two volumes. One for the EMG and one for the singles. Also, one tone for the EMG) Obviously, both circuits would have to use the EMG connector. Also, the single coils would have to be string grounded. The EMG cannot be grounded. (According to EMG installation instructions) I want the 5 way selector to turn the EMG on in the bridge position by itself. I don't want the switch to 'mix' the EMG with the singles. With the remaining positions of the switch, I want a combination of Middle On/Neck Off, Middle off / Neck on, Both on. So, I want alot but I don't think I can wire it without a schematic or instructions.  
Anyone ever done this? Any suggestions?  
Thank You,
