If you have a scan tool, look for ICP pressure.

Get out on the interstate and up to 60, floor it and keep it floored up to about 90. Your reading will increase, and then start dropping and then stabilize. If you get 2800+ psi then you are golden. Most people get around 2200, which is ok. If you can't do 1900 then its really time for a replace or upgrade.

You can do the same with a mechanical gauge. You will find plugs on the top of your heads, they are 5/8 and you can pick any of them. Run your gauge to the pickup and do the same test as before.

A 17 pump will help, but from my own experience you won't notice much difference in power or how the truck drives. Your stock pump can keep up decently until you start adding power or mash your foot to the floor, then it starts to drop pressure. This is where the 17 will make the difference, it will be able to keep the pressure up and keep the ICP from going below what is commanded and setting the SES light.
I have the TE modded 17 in my truck, I also ran it in my old 96 with stock injectors. I noticed no difference at all in driveability after putting it in, but it ran a little smoother.

Your wheels are terrible OP, good God.

If your stock hpop were to blow out or be weak, I wouldn't hesitate to put in a TE pump. If you plan to get some bigger sticks and good tuning, I wouldn't hesitate to put in a TE pump. If you plan on installing a plain old 17* pump, I wouldn't hesitate to pay less/the same for a TE pump. If you ever plan to get some less ghetto wheels, I wouldnt hesitate to continue giving advice.
