Yes, just follow the mods and you get real close to yz power. Throw in a cam, port the head and you get more than a yz.
Im thinking of buying a wr450f. I've ridden a rmz450 (motocross) and i loved how it was wheeling it self up effortless not like my drz400 :S! So i wonder if i put a few minor mods on a wr450f (grey wire,pipes..etc) will it be close to the feeling of the bike wheeling it self effortless? Atleast 1-2-3? Can you compare my drz400e power to the wr450f?

You have a lot more quick response power and 25-30 lbs less weight and better suspension...a great combination.
It wont be as nimble as the MXer due to weight and overall design characteristics...but you'll have lots of jam and lots of fun.

The WR, on the other hand, is one of the best bikes I have owned. Just bought a 2nd one.

if you have the head work done, make sure you have a good engineer do it. i have seen some real hack jobs done before that don't do the combustion any favors at all.
