Deviation rich means you are running LEAN.

You likely have a vacuum leak.

Check the lower CCV oil return hose, fuel pressure regulator vacuum line at the filter and see the first 2 links below in my signature.
Ahh, ok, had it backwards. Makes sense I guess (ECU trying to richen fuel/air mix and deviated too far in that direction). Thanks. I will continue searching for a vacuum leak. Do you or anyone have suggestions on any other creative ways of tracking it down besides just checking the common places?
