Default [Q] kernel for Gen.Y Vision

sorry for writing a certain rom related request in this category but rules are rules.

so after living 3,5 years happily with the stock rom for my desireZ, i decided to use a custom rom. i tried 4-5 roms and noticed that i cannot make it without sense. (I don't like change much) So i decided to use Gen.Y Vision R1.3 EXT4.

I'm currently using a 1600 mAh battery and with stock rom (build 2.42.405.5, kernel and baseband had near a 2 day long battery life. However after i installed Gen.Y, i couldn't even make a day with daily usage.

What i'm willing to know is there a better kernel (if it is kernel related) that i can use for a longer battery life?
OR i would like to try the Gen.Y Vision R1.2 (stock kernel @ 806 MHz, EXT3 System) but the link is dead. It would be appreciated if someone would upload it somewhere.

While I used to Run this Rom, i used to use Hushi kernel by Neo2SHYAlien.
But as this Rom is full sense, hence its too heavy for our device, why dont you try some lite sense!!!
A great option would be CoolOS's Sensei.
