I own a B.C. Rich Warlock and I was thinking about getting new pickups for it. I was considering EMGs, but I'm always hearing good and bad things about them. I'm a metal player and I am looking for pickups that will give me a more crunchier and brutal sound when distorted, but also a warm tone on clean. I'm open to any suggestions and my budget is infinite.
If it's blue, then it MUST smell good.

If you have a H-H set up i would suggest EMG -81 and EMG - 85, or if not a pair of high output seymour duncan's such as the dimebucker, personally I would go with the EMG's.

i like em, but whatever, amps give you more brutal sound than pickups. seymour duncans are good too, just go to a guitar store.

EMG's all the way, either 81/85 or 81/60

BUt it all dependsas well what amp you're running through.

to me a LP shaped guitar with EMG's and a tube amp = aural orgasm

They won't make an awful lot of difference with the Spider, basically you'd be shelling out for little more than a cosmetic change. There's far better uses of your money...if your budget is infinite then buy yourself a proper amp like a Framus Cobra or Engl Powerball.

I'm not going to be using the Spider for much longer. I need to buy an amp with a bigger and fuller sound that will actually carry through a nice sized room without having to crank it up to the point where it cracks.

Then sort out the amp situation first, that way you'll be able to make an informed decision about what needs addressing tonewise.

The Seagull is right. You only need pickups to make a good tone better. Don't worry 'bout them till you have your amp, that would be more important.

id say get an EMG 81/60 or 81/89 combo, the 60 or 89 are eahc the best EMGS for cleans

depending on your amp emg's will rock but if you have a solid state (meaning that your amp has no valves like the roland cubes or line 6 spiders) than get something like the DiMarzio X2N, they shred.

I'm thinking about getting a valve amp cause I've heard good marks about them. But, I guess that would have to go under another forum post.
