Default Misfires all cylinders bank 2 (4, 5, 6)

I've searched and read most threads on misfires. Causes appear to be mostly from:

1. sparks plugs
2. coil packs
3. icm
4. bad timing (maybe)
5. wiring (rarely)

If ALL 3 cylinders in bank 2 (4,5,6 driver side bank) are misfiring consistently (every time I start the car) and I do NOT have ICMs (034 icm delete/2.0T coilpack conversion) what else could be the problem?

1. I'll be replacing spark plugs, but they _look_ fine.
2. coil packs are nearly new, and unlikely that all 3 in one bank are failing when the other bank is fine
3. no icms
4. vag-com says timing is within spec, might replace the belt since it seems a bit stretched
5. haven't tested for bad wiring

Could possibly be the cam chain tensioner on that side?

If timing is fine, then tensioner wouldn't be the problem, most likely?

SOLVED: ICM replacement cables in the kit were not fully seated. DERP.
