Realistic Results from swapping out 15* HPOP for a 17* or Adrenaline?

Ok, my early 99 has the following mods

4" turboback
Van turbo (larger exhast housing and no EBPV)
6.0 Intercooler
Inline boost pump
Tymar intake
TW tuning

I'm interested in optimizing my current setup. I've considered injectors for a long time, but I'd rather do something like the HPOP first. It seems the HPOP is a semi easy install. My question is with my current mods, and stock AB injectors how much power and driveability will i realize as a result from installing a 17* pump or an Adrenaline in place of the stock 15*. Not that it matters, but even with the turbo upgrades I do smoke quite a bit, with tapering smoke in the higher rev's. So it seems the fuel is there, maybe better atomization from a better pump would help clear it up and make more power?

You don't need the chip reburned for oil. A 17* is all the oil you will need, you can get rebuilt ones under $400.

Is there a substantial increase across the board by installing one? Im trying to justify the $400 I'd be spending.

can anyone verify that the change to a 17* pump from a stock 15* is a worthwhile upgrade for $400 when using stock injectors??

If you are going to upgrade I wouldn't bother with a stock pump, go with the adrenaline and you won't have to worry about the dreaded 1211 code. Yes there is a large difference.

the adrenaline is amazing it powers my injectors and I never see a low oil code. I would not justify spending 400 on a 17* but 600 or 700 on an adrenaline is definitely worth it.

My truck never ran so good and I noticed increased mileage about 1 mpg
