If you are getting 150 grams of protein daily you are already getting the protein you need for muscle growth (1 gram per pound of LEAN body weight.) Working higher reps (if you are still working to failure) won't change the amount of growth or repair you need to sustain. Just the type or muscle fibers you affect are different (fast twitch/slow twitch) and so the visual results are different.
