Hello and sorry for the delay! Are you sure the fuel pressure regulator is not leaking fuel into the engine? This can cause the rich running condition. This is very common. You can check to see if the reuglator is leaking by checking fuel pressure. Just prime the system and see if the pressure bleeds off key on engine off.

Some other possible causes would be an air or a vacuum leak, (intake manifold gasket leak), mass air flow sensor that is skewed, bad engine coolant temp sensor or even leaky fuel injectors.
