    Oh boy, there's a lot of choices there. If you don't want to spend too much, the DiMarzio Model P and Model J (which are sold as a PJ combo) are a popular choice. I've put a set of Bartolini PJs in a Fender that worked well. The reality is that almost anything will be an upgrade from stock.

    Edit: You also might want to fill out your profile so we know what kind of bass it is exactly. :)

    its an old (85-89) p bass that is on its 3rd neck (cheap no name that my l9ocal music shop gave me for free).
    also if you could post a diagram of the wiring need that would be great

    I would use a DiMarzio "Will Power" middle pickup with an ultra J at the bridge. This thing will 1 huge sounding bass. I also would NOT coil tap either pickup... just let them be humbuckers.
