How important is correct draft for a proper plastic injection molding quote?

I am looking to send a bunch of CAD files to a contract plastic injection manufacturer for quoting, however the parts don’t all have the correct draft. They can all be made via a single pull but there are a couple spots with zero draft but no undercuts.

Should I update all of these parts before I get a quote? Will the quote be better if the draft angles are more correct? I just need an approximate quote and don’t want to do all the DFM work right now if I don’t have to.

We want to get a quote so we can address design or product changes.

Since the draft establishes the guidelines & quality of the finished product, I’d think it would be VERY important!!!
