I'm not clear. To get more aero, are you getting down in the drops or not?
If you are not in the drops, you are not doing much to improve your aero drag. Longer stem + saddle forward won't help much if you are still up on the hoods.
Basically, look at yourself from the side (have someone take a pictures, or ride by a reflective window). The closer to horizontal and flattened out your back is, the more aero.
