Default Help! 95 Blazer Vortec V6 idle problems

My 95 Blazer 4.3 Vortech V6 CPFI (63,000 miles) idles like crap, but runs fine when driving. I have replaced the fuel pump and regulator, Oxygen sensor, Idle Air Control Valve, as well as completed a tune up. The right bank of spark plugs were fouled out, leading me to believe the CPFI is leaking and in need of replacement. But before I dump this kind of money into this CPFI, I would like to know this is the problem. Does anyone have any ideas on this? Help is greatly appreciated.

It is very possible that the CPI is the problem. It doesn't make sense that it would only foul one bank of plugs. Another thing that can cause the idle problem is the EGR valve, they had a bad problem with plugging up, and we had to change lots of them at the dealer. I can't remember if they came out with an updated part or if we just used the same ones to replace them. If you know someone with a scanner, have them check the EGR position, it may not be closing all the way. Just a thought.
