Door jam contacts vs. door poppers

Iím installing door jam contacts with 7 points of contact. Is there enough spring power in these door jam contacts to pop open a door when the power door is activated? Or should I install door poppers.
I am going to leave my original door handles on it.

No, I have them on a 47 Dodge business coupe. Only enuff force to ensure contact with other side. Not a door popper.
