    Wow you have cover all the basics. That engine has "shim" adjusted valves but it could cause a misfire on various cylinders but all your misfires are on one bank. What are the fuel trim figures are the different on each bank? I would have thought a vacuum leak at the bank but you did a smoke test so you have illuminated that. O2 sensor can affect just one bank. I would love to know what you find. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect....
