It sounds like you may have ruled out an ignition problem. It may be a fuel delivery issue. I just went through this on my 99 Blazer. #6 Cylinder was consistently misfiring and also had random misfire codes. I replaced the fuel spider and the truck runs great. No codes.

I agree, Mark. Those spider assemblies are notorious for being troublesome! HTH. - Jim
