i know both are great pickups but which 1 is better

imma put them in my s470 when i get it
run it through my friends valve

i want a nice distortion but good cleans too

ohh i play metal (metallica and dragonforce)
and alternative

Are you going to put it in the bridge or neck or both?

With EMG's you would be much better off buying the full set. You woudn't want one pickup (the EMG) to be 50% louder than the other one. If you want a good EMG set, I'd recommend an 89/81. I have that in my Ibanez. Sounds amazing. One of the best cleans and distortion tones I've had.

actives and passives dont go together, so you cant mix and match in that respect

Well out of the 2 bands you listed, metallica uses emgs and dragonforce uses evos, so whichever sound you like better. never tried the evos, but i have emg 81/85 combo in my schecter and its great for metal. i'd say to be sure just try them both at a local shop and see what you like best.

evo, if you want to play clean stuff and still have good metal sounds

Who says EMGs cant be clean? I love the clean sound from my EMG 60 (the 85s and 89s are awesome as well).

Id say go with the EMGs.
