as you can see I've been stacking spirit cause when I started HCS Id go OOM all the time. But when as disco do I stop stacking spirit and focus more on int and other stats?

I've actually been going with this priority while gearing in heroics:
collect 12.5% base Crit from gear, then gear mostly for Haste and Mastery.
12.5% base crit will get 10% added from Renewed Hope, 5% added from group buffs, and you might get a little more from MoTW
. Inner Focus adds another 25%, so you will be experiencing anywhere between 28%–53% crit chance on the tank. At this gear level, that's manageable. After getting into full 359's, I would plan to have around 15-17% base crit from gear before tackling the next raiding tier. Keep in mind, you can also get 3% crit from Focus Magic, and 3% haste from Dark Intent.
So once you get a decent amount of crit, you'll want to speed up those long casts of yours (Heal, Greater Heal, Prayer of Healing) with a big pile of Haste. The longer the cast, the more you'll benefit from Haste. So with your Heal and Greater Heal critting a decent amount on the tank, and using Prayer of Healing for group heals/absorption, your next best stat is Mastery.
Don't put all your eggs into one basket, though. 1200 Mastery rating and ony 300 Crit rating is just too big of a gap.
Think about how you play and what spells you use most, then what stats would benefit them most.EDIT 1
: Regarding Spirit, you really only need to stack it until you aren't going OOM on the content you're doing. So for heroics, you can get away with having 2 or 3 non-Spirit pieces if it means you still have enough mana to last through a boss fight. If mana isn't such a problem for you and you can end a fight at 50%+, then feel free to stack more throughput (Haste/Crit/Mastery).
For raiding, this is a different matter as fights may last 5-7 minutes. In this situation, you'll want Spirit to be on every piece you're wearing.EDIT 2
: Armory is back up, so I'll show you my numbers: 994 Haste, 703 Mastery, 664 Crit. The only reforging I've done is to take some points from Mastery and put them into Haste or Spirit, depending on which stat the piece is lacking. Added other sources of crit and haste above, in bold.
