DDP Stage 2 to Stage 3

This is my first post on the site. I have been lurking around for a while.
Here is the question. I put DDP Stage 2 injectors in my 96 and they sure made a difference. The Stage 2 are good for 75HP. If I decided to go for the Stage 3 would I notice the 15HP increase above the Stage 2? Is it worth the extra money or is the money I saved better spent on a new Turbo?

Alot of great info from this site.

Well the AFC mods that I have done are the washers on the diaghram and the spring kit from TST. I have the medium spring installed right now and its adjusted to help with smoke. No grinding on the AFC arm. Seen your post on the washers to put pre-load on the stock governor springs.The #10 plate is set on the conservative side about .030 forward of center. Before the Stage 2's 31psi boost was fairly easy to obtain. Since the install of the injectors 35 to 36psi is easy to obtain. Yes I am watching things especially with clutch. Congrats to the guys who won the SB clutch. I know I could have used the clutch.

You would notice a difference, but you could just slide you fuel plate forward and adjust to limit smoke under full boost and achieve the same thing. Might as well use those injectors and save money for a turbo!
