BACKGROUND

I am trying to build my new 19" Kona Kula frame up with the same geometry as my old 2008 one. It had either
12 deg stem 90mm
or
15 deg stem 90mm
(depending on whether Kona or WTB are right, they gave different answers).
I can not find any 12 or 15 deg stems of decent quality the closest I can find is a 10 or 20 deg.

QUESTION

What would be the difference (and amount of difference) between a 10 deg and 20 deg stem given that I would adjust the spacers to put the bars in the same place.
