his bike shouldn't be any quicker than yours. whilst the bike has a better set up this year i don't think that anyone has made a power increase claim.
what about the difference in gearing?
is your slow & UNDERPERFORMING?
look for threads on this site regarding top clamps that have variable bar mounts. try to go to a set of protapers at the same time.
occasionally YZ tanks get sold here & thats what you really need for a local thrash. if you're doing longer distances for the day etc, try to buy an IMS, Clarke or a Ty Davis tank. the Ty sounds like it's the best but the finish is sloppy. the Clarke, which i've got, is beautifully finished. got mine from North County Yamaha for $125.

I think Scott’s makes a triple clamp set that (more or less) duplicates the offset of the ’00 that you can try on your ’99.

Most of us cant get even 25% out of the bike we have, but we all love trying.
I have found that if you enjoy tweeking and playing with after market goodies you can make ANY bike a rocket and a blast to ride.
Concentrate on your bike set up. Read all the forums. Ride more with riders like yourself and just have fun with what you have.
Otherwise, go buy a brand new one and you will still spend a lot of money on upgrades and add ons.
Good luck and ride safe!
