If you run the pickups at 9 volt, you won't need to rout any wood out, though it makes it easier to switch batteries when you have a box installed. 18 or 27, you will need to do some routing though.
To install EMGs BTC EQ you won't need to rout anything out. You can even add the VMC and have a much more flexible tone, though you will have to move the output jack to the side of the body to accomodate the extra controls unless you go for a stacked dual volume control.
EMGs are good pickups, with one drawback. Any bass with EMGs sounds pretty much the same as any other bass with EMGs.
