Yeah, reality is I need to just go see evolution or someone and let them set me up. I guess coming from the MTB world, replacing the stock fork on most bikes was usually my first upgrade. Lots of aftermarket options that had better build quality and were generally stiffer and more adjustable than the stock options. I dunno what Marzocchi's rep is in the moto world, but in the MTB world they had a pretty good rep for making quality performance focused gear. They only got bad marks for weight, but I never cared about a little extra weight if it made roots and rocks disappear.

I suppose on a moto there wouldn't be as much different in the torsional stiffness between the stock forks and Ohlins or Marzocchi making is really more about the internals?

That's unfortunate, I never found Fox's forks to be as solid. But who know's if that has changed, I guess I haven't been paying attention for a while now. Interesting to see Ohlins doing rear shocks for some MTBs now.
