I've helped out the economy enough with all my gear purchases... granted, alot of them were used or trades, but still. Time to slow it down! Plus, a magnet swap can make more of a tonal difference than a new pup, especially with lower output PAF types.
I will definitely try the foil, and I'll report back to this thread when I do. I'll probably try swapping in one A8 to the bridge at first, and maybe an A3 in the neck for funsies (could use some more treble).
