Found it.  PHRF rating says i foot added to luff. I'm pretty sure I added 2 feet to mast.

Hi John,

First caveat: I'm not an expert on this.

I'm not sure exactly how much I had added to mast height. The forestay stayed the same length, so if you think it's important and can wait a few days, I can measure the distance from forestay tang to masthead and get back to you; that measurement should be the added length.

I don't think we changed the height of the gooseneck off the cabin top; I had the mainsail leach cut shorter than usual to elevate the boom end. That way the boom clears my head when I'm standing on the cockpit sole

If you're not racing where tiny things matter (and Pilots don't race that way), it's probably not much of an issue. Just going to carbon will be a huge improvement for the boat.

Maybe talk to a sailmaker?

But I'm pretty sure there's no "right" answer.
