too lean could be a VAC leak. IE unmetered air being drawn into the engine. AS your engine is non turbo you need to check all the inlet pipes after the MAF for signs of leak. if you spray carb cleaneraround the inlet pipes with the engine at idle you will hear the engine note pickup when you spray near a leak. (only needs a small amount though, don't go soaking the pipes as it should be easily noticed) HTH

Try clamping off the breather pipe where it goes into the inlet pipe and see if it alters. Depends on which 1..6 it is but I have seen the valve on the breather system fail and it sucks to much into the inlet so the ECU leans off the mixture.
