Default ROMs and kernels for the Telus S2

I've been flashing quite a few roms to try them out. Here are my favorites:

Smoothest rom and kernel:

1. Juggernaut plus new bullet kernel (2.9). Don't use 2.7 (not that stable vs 2.9).

What I like:
-very fast and stable
-can use Fauxclock to overclock and underclock
-can turn off one core to save battery life and only use 2 cores if demanded
-rom tweaker built in
-can flash ics theme with no issues. Man is this hot! Looks amazing

XDA Link: Juggernaut

2.Mr. X'S Telus patched rooted rom and stock CIQ free kernel

What I liked:
-close to stock
-rooted with stock kernel
-patched for speed
-compatible with synergy kernel

XDA Link: Mr. X Telus
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Kernels:
Synergy is great for undervolting but I have found that it had less battery life than the new bullet (2.9) with Fauxclock. Edit: new 0.08 synergy is awesome. Using this now

Synergy Kernel
Bullet Kernel

Mr. X looks good as I actually like the stock rom. Speaking of X, will this run on the S2X?
