When I learned physics in high school, other kids were bored and I was going "holy shit...so this is how this stuff works!". I was going home and thinking in terms of how things were designed to function. When you understand how things work, you can start taking command of their function or at least understand when things go wrong.
Manufacturer manuals try to break down the adjustment process to a mechanical and simple level often neglecting the importance of why it is done. Sometimes burying a step in a one sentence comment that gets missed.
People loose concept of how knowledge and experience has value. You can learn this stuff and develop experience..which takes time, effort, gains and losses. Or, you can find a decent dyno shop to do the work. Won't solve the altitude issue, but things will be closer and maybe even plan for a change to those conditions (I have been in places where swapping jets on location was worth the effort).
