No, you're not. It's not that difficult and does result in a better flight experience. LM did something in it's last iteration(s) of P3D where a tested AM does make a difference. I've got the hours in to prove it.
Anyway, forget the graphs, percentages and commentary; its a distraction. After a long testing period on the latest P3D 4.3, and AM of 213 and my other addons on the open cores via batch file. I'll give you a few simple resources to work with to accomplish this.
One last note that I'm sure you're aware of. There isn't a standard PC platform out in the ether. There are going to be a lot different variables associated with each machine. Those variables change depending on where the aircraft is located and how it's being used. My point is that even after testing an AM at the same location, airport, settings, as I did, it's going to behave differently at alternate locations. My AM results in the best smoothness at the places I fly with the settings I use. Here you go..
