so i have a MIM strat, and i love her, but doesnt sound very "metal", so could i grab a more high output pickup for the bridge for metal, and keep the neck, or change it out to keep the strat sound just a nicer one?

You could cut the pickguard and shove a SD JB in there, but you can get a Hot Rails which will fit in the already cut single sized hole.

What amp do you have? For a reason why, look at the green text below!

i have a valvetronix, and i can get my almost perfect tone from it, and i was gonna buy an ibanez to get some more metal sounds, but i thought this would work just as well

Hot rails for the bridge should do the trick, just like Lil Macker said.

Epiphone Les Paul Standard w/ SD Alnico Pro II's
Fender Aerodyne Telecaster & Stratocaster
Marshall JCM 800 4104 combo

Valvetronix is, at the end of the day, not a tube amp. High output pickups will do **** all for your sound.
Save the money up for a good tube amp. For metal, try the Peavey Valveking or Randall RG50TC, though bear in mind the latter is prone to reliability issues.

I have a hotrail in my strat, it's great, but I also have a SD JB which i find is even better, especially for metal, more highs
