How to wire 85/15S pickups with US electronics

Hi everyone,

I have a PRS SE Custom 24 I want to upgrade however I walk into some problems and I hope you can help me.

I have this US electronics set now in my guitar and will keep on using the PRS 85/15S picksups I already have. These pickups have a black, red, green and white wire (the green and white wires are bundled and were formerly used on the tone pot for coil splitting).

As a start I have wired everything as displayed in this diagram for a US PRS Custom 24.

However 2 things are different:

1. What are described as bridge and neck 'whites' are in my case whites + greens.
2. I would like the configuration as stated below.

My question is:

How do I have to wire everything in order to get:

Position 1: Bridge humbucker
Position 2: Bridge coil-split
Position 3: Both humbuckers
Position 4: Neck coil-split
Position 5: Neck humbucker

Would really appreciate your help, given I am quite lost now.

With kind regards,
