3. Repeat 1 and 2 3X and do all tests back-to-back.

This would be possible if the cars computer would adjust extremely quickly. the cars computer has to learn new fuel trims and new timing with different spark plugs everytime. so doing it back to back would be pointless and wont have reliable numbers. this is why I've tested a pre-learn stage then later on a learned stage dyno test.
