Both kinds of #4 LV planes (custom and older-style) have adjustable mouths, and getting a 0.01" mouth with either of them should be extremely simple. Also and as David said, that's not small enough to make a significant difference.

Whatever you've stumbled onto probably has more to do with other aspects of your setup (sharpening or cap iron set?) than with the mouth.
