ok it would be 85 on neck and 81 on bridge, but which one do you recommend me in to the single in the middle position, SA or S, any experience with that pickup configuration?

would i need to change the pots and the 5-way switch right?

the SA has an alnico magnet and the S has a ceramic one, so whichever you like the tone of go for

as far as i know, EMG 85s and 81s aren't splittable, so you'd have to figure out a good wiring pattern for them with either a 5-way or a 3-way switch, since normally the humbuckers are split and combined with the middle in pos 2 and 4. pots should be fine, though.

then how would be the kirk hammet set, 81-S-S, it has a 5way switch isnt it?

You could leave the 5 way switch, but would need new pots unless you already had actives.
The 5 way switch would be:
1. Neck
2. Neck+Middle
3. Middle
4. Bridge+Middle
5. Bridge
