Default Ackerman and steering rack relationship

If I move the entire steering knuckle/spindle forward because of additional caster, the rack to knuckle relationship is now changed. This is on a front steer car, a Gen5 Camaro with MacStrut front suspension.

Does the ackerman change by moving the rack forward as in my situation? If so, is it now more pro-ackerman or more anti-ackerman?

In the below pic you can see how the tie rod end is pulled forward in relation to the rack & pinion.
Thank You
