Another problem that seems to crop up on the 038 series is the annular buffer shock mount which is on the left hand side aft of the engine .

These can become worn out allowing the intake boot to become stretched which will tear them on the under side .It's nearly impossible to tell if the boot is damaged unless it's removed and inspected .Obviously with a slight tear it won't leak air all the time and will cause a lean out at high speeds .Won't happen all the time though .I've changed around 4 or 5 of these things along with the buffers .
Thanks Al, but I don't seem to be running lean.  I am over rich if anything.
