I can't decide between a few pickups. The music I play is mostly metal or thrash metal. I have a line six spider 4 and an ltd mh250.

Forget the pickups. Get a new amp first.

You should look at Bareknuckle too, Painkillers, Warpigs, Nailbomb... Though personally I'm not massively into mega output pickups even when playing metal. But the others are right, spending money on new pickups is probably not worth it when you could get much more out of a better amp.

I would think the Invaders, while really high output, might be too warm for true thrash. The Custom or Pegasus would be better choices for thrash. With actives, you will have to replace the pots, and jack, too, but that is fairly easy.

IDK springing for BK's for an MH250 played through a Spider 4 seems like a monumental waste of funds, if OP wants to improve their tone they need to save for an amp ubgrade.

Invaders are what James Hetfield used mostly, before switching to EMGs. Soooo I'm thinking you can make it work with them.

But I agree that you should start with an amp first. It'll bring you closer to your tone than new pups. You can throw all the pups you want at a guitar, if you don't have a decent amp, they'll never get you where you want to go.

I'd also put the $200 towards a better amp. I paid $315 for a Laney IRT-Studio so you are most of the way there already but will need some speakers.

A Peavey 6505+ 112 combo can be had for under $400.
Guitars:
Jackson Kelly KE3 - MIJ (Distortion/Jazz)
Jackson DKMGT Dinky (EMG 81/85)
ESP E-II Eclipse Custom (JB/'59)
ESP LTD EC-1001FR (EMG 81/60)
Fender MIM Strat

Amps:
Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier Roadster 212
Laney IronHeart IRT-Studio
Peavey Vypyr 30
Peavey ReValver Amp Sims
TOOOO many T.C. Electronic Pedals. . .
