There's no need to be in VLOC mode if you're navigating to a VOR and then going into a GPS approach. You can stay in GPS mode throughout...

single 430W *may* be cheaper than 400+SL30... depends on what you can find on the market.. or may be a wash..

If you go with an EFIS (any) you'll have to switch something somewhere regardless of whether you use standalone 430 or 400+SL30 when you go from GPS nav to ILS.. though as mentioned, 430 has a capability to automatically switch from GPS to VLOC.
