So i have a Schecter S1 Elite, and i have about 150 dollars for the summer, so i can not go buy a new strat, which is the sound i am going for.
that said,

how hard would it be to switch out the double coil pickups and put single coils?

Note: i have switched out the pups before, but would single coil work?

It's easy to swap pickups, but it will not (definitely not) give you a Strat sound, so I don't think it's gonna be worth it in this case. Also, you might wanna start calling it a 'humbucker'.

Alright, then ill keep saving?

get a pair of four wire humbuckers. with a good couple of choices of pairs you could get some pretty good strat sounds + more. you'd need to add (add I mean drill for) some new switches (like two) or you could replace a tone with a rotary if you have enough room, ect.

it's your second best choice for trying to get your dual humbucker equipped guitar to get some strat sounds, the best choice being getting a strat.

that there is a single coil sized humbucker.

this is a humbucker with four wires, allowing you to use one or the other coil by itself, or both in series (normal humbucker) or parallel (like position two or four would be in a strat)

^Since you're splitting hairs (pun not intended, but duly noted), it should be called coil splitting. Anyways, I've heard no more than two splittable humbucker pickups that gave a decent single coil sound. Meaning, the nice sorta Fender-ish sound.
