I have A 2008 American Fender Start standard HSS.

i keep it as my drop C guitar, but the problem is that the bridge pickup sounds too clean for a bridge pickup that is a humbucker

and anyways, the middle and neck single coils has better cleans that the bridge's so therefore the bridge pickup is useless.

So I i've decieded to change the bridge pickup.

I going for toxicity-era-SOAD / BFMV/ Trivium Sound

and i have no budget.

What do you guys reccomend?

It might be. The JCM2000s are modern voiced ,but they don't get the heaviest and not heavy enough fo BFMV IMO. Try a boost or OD to get a bit more gain and a tighter sound and you might not even need new pups.

I'm still confused why you have a Strat as a drop C guitar though.

I've got a Digitech Metal master, but it just can't get that BFMV sound.

and about why my start as my drop C guitar, Its because i don; want to drp my gibson LP standard, nor my schecter with a FR so its a pain in the ass to tune it back up. and not the ibanez SV5470 because it's still annoying as ass to tune back up

Well, Matt and Corey of Trivium and Matt of BFMV all use EMG 81's I seem to remember, but if you're worried about it overpowering your passive single coils take a look at EMG passive pickups, like the HZ series.
Otherwise try some Seymour Duncan JB's or Jazz pickups, both passive.
Rock on!
