Any help will be appreciated.

Q3 - First, Like Brian said.
Q1 - For peace of Mind.
I did Q4 and think I wasted my money, for this reason - the IP on these seems incredibly durable and rarely needs any adjustment (my experience).
Q2 - don't think so, never seen a single thread on this subject.

AND.... you did not mention a new air filter, should I assume you have a new air filter ?

My 300D NA engine does great at 70 to 80mph, the RPM's seem higher than I'd like, but otherwise does have decent top end speed.
