Did you star ground everything per the Quieting the Beast mod? The bare and green wires need to be soldered to ground. I had this same problem with my dual humbucker strat and discovered I had a ground loop. Once that was eliminated the buzz went away.
You can use the cap if you can get it. I didn't in my guitar but I will add it once I get a few of those caps. Just run a wire from the star ground ring to the ring that slips on to one of the pots shafts.
You don't "have" to star ground since you put that pickup in, but it is beneficial since it removes all the ground loops and descreases that noise.
