I having lsp-mode on or off didn’t really have much of an effect, and I’d had 
performance issues since before lsp-mode existed. Though the biggest 
performance killer in long heavily indented rspec files was the 
highlight-indent-guides package. But even with that turned off, various 
operations were still pretty slow most of the time, specially inserting a new 
line which would often take a good 300-500ms on those problematic files.

Admittedly, I’ve not really tried running Emacs without native-comp for nearly 
a year, and it was nearly 18 months ago I started using native-comp builds. I’m 
curious now though, so I’ll create a local master build without native comp 
tomorrow and see how it behaves.
