So far so good. The transition was pretty smooth. The default settings and kernel with launcherPro result in a very smooth interface. Battery life has been decent (better than Cyanogen + Chevy 1ghz kernel for sure). Thats with SetCPU set at "performance" settings.
The default kernel seems to run cooler than the Chevy 1ghz kernel I was running before. No bootloops or weird laggy behavior.
