Default running rich

i am running waaayyyy too rich.

symptoms:
fouling up plugs without blow-by or burning oil
poor gas milage
not throwing a code

solutions previously attempted:
cleaned air filter (using a spectre cone filter)
changed plugs and prayed
changed fuel filter
used injector cleaner
changed 02 sensors
cleaned maf, throttle body, and intake manifold

mods:
glasspack muffler as replacement for oem
high flow intake

possible solutions:
increase gap of spark plug (due to carefull research i have found that you can safely open your plug gap to .063 [that is with a high performance coil] i am thinking about jumping up from .044 to .048 or .050)
or any suggestions as i would like to try something that has next to zero chance of backfiring on me

ideas?
