Had my Jaguar for about 3 years now and I've been thinking recently about putting some more powerful pickups in. To the dudes that have done this, what would you recommended?

(This has probably been asked a million times I'm sorry)

Like fatter single coils? Or mini humbuckers?

You could just turn your amp up to 11

Is it Japanese or American? If it's Japanese pretty much anything will sound more powerful.

Duncan make the "Hot for Jaguar" (got it baaad, got it baaad, got it baaaad) and the Quarter Pounder for Jags
The first phase Antiquity Jag pickup is probably a bit more hot and well-rounded than the AVRI pickups too, though it is aimed at a more vintage sound.

I've dropped in some AVRI pickups into my Japenese Jag and they sound ace. I do run my guitar straight into an EQ pedal first for a bit of a boost first though, so that probably makes them equivalent to higher output pickups.

Honestly I think the amp is the most important part of the sound equation. A decent guitar can sound amazing through the right amp.

I've had a SD 'Hot' in the bridge and a Quarter Pound in the neck, but the QP is far to big and muddy for me, I wouldn't recomend it, at least in the neck.

I mostly record with an interface right into software so I don't really use my amp that much

If I were looking at changing my Jag pups again I would look at the Creamery. Have spoken to them about their WRHBs and they are really nice to deal with, very helpful and open to custom winds to make sure you get what you want.

and it really depends on the sound you're after. avri pickups seem to get a more high-output version of a vintage jag -- bright without being brittle, bassy without being brash. sjags are a lot more ballsy and more readily lend themselves to high octane rock. personally, though, i have no complaints about my avri's ability to get some brutal tones. you will be doing yourself a favor, i think, in whatever direction go away from the stock japanese pickups, imho.

If you want hotter, Classic Player Jaguar single coil pickups are supposedly wound hotter than vintage or AVRI.
Some people don't like them, but maybe those are the people who don't think a Jaguar should have hotter than vintage pickups. Other people seem to like them just fine. I can't pass judgement on them myself, because I didn't want hotter pickups, philosophically, so I took them out of the guitar almost instantly after I bought it .
