Metallitera, you're better off making ONE change at a time rather than two or three... if you just arbitrarily change things, you won't know if the results you get are for one change, the other, or both.
You said you changed the intake as well as added 2-stroke oil recently. You might try JUST the new intake for a few tanks WITHOUT the oil, THEN add the oil for a few. Try switching back and forth between intakes, so a couple-three tanks on one intake, then a few on the other, then switch the oil, then switch intakes, etc. You could even plot your results on a chart then, to make it easier to determine what did what.
