Update - I did start having issues with the dialer (it worked but there was an annoying delay). Installing Zepius's kernel solved that issue...the dialer is as snappy now as I have ever seen it in stock. I dont know what changed with his kernel but whatever it was it works.
It tops out at 900mhz...the one I was using before went to 1ghz. But the speed drop is barely noticable, and the dialer seems super stable now.
