RE: Running rich on driver's side bank, surging at cold start, no acceleration
Have a good mechanic check your compression on each cylinder. Also, a leaking intake gasket will also cause the cylinder breakdown you decribe with fouled plugs. The possibilities are endless.
Are you positive it's running rich or is it just unburned gas caused by any of the above problems? Also, do the plugs look worse from the back and get better looking towards the front or do they all look like they are fouled the same?
BTW, WELCOME ABOARD!!
