Who knows - maybe you were running your CIS leaner? (That would make the mid-range much more responsive and the high-range much bumpier!)
No idea, When I looked at the spark plugs they seemed fine and I take it the idle CO was set correctly to pass MOT for the previous owner. I've never had it retested due to taking it apart.

This is why I have got an Innovate XD-16 kit ready to fit!

I haven't checked the ignition timing yet either.
