Default will Formula gain me 3 knots ?

currently have 160 liter 79 cm board with 53 cm race fin and MS TR-4 10-oh
can plane in about 12 to 13 knots with NO pumping
people keep suggesting Formula to me for earlier planing
at 215 lbs would a SB Formula with 100 cm and a 70 cm fin get me on a plane with the same 10-oh at 10 to 12 knots ??
or, would this also require a 12.5 meter sail ? if so, it is NOT worth my while :-(

i know this is an age old question, but the data seems to vary case by case ...

thx in advance
