Alright I have a H&K 15 DFX and MIM HSS Strat. I can get a decent Iron Maiden amp tone but its missing an edge or oomph.I was considering a Dimarzio Super Distortion but anysuggestions welcome.

U sure u need a new pickup? mabye its time for a new amp? the reason for no 'oomph' is probably cos of the speaker size. so mabye dont get new pickup?

just a suggestion imo. Also, mabye a SD would probably work better for a maiden tone (they use them after all)
i have a modest rig which consists of guitar related stuff

You don't need new pickups, you need a better amp...however an EQ pedal might help as a quick fix.

No I don't even have the $80 for the pick-up let alone a new amp.

ok, then i suggest you think about a pedal.
not sure how your amp takes pedals i see it's got dfx in it's name.

perhaps you can take it with you to GC, put it on clean and start plugging in pedals until you find you that works well with your guitar.

a new pup will make it sound better.
a new pedal, if the right one, will make it sound the way you want it to.

edit: maybe you're almost at the tone you want.
check out the EQ and if you really want a new pup, i'd stick with dimarzio, but i'm not a super d fan.
