    Start by clearing the code yourself, fix the vacumn leak, and then running it again to trip the code- that way you're getting a clean set of codes. I don't think a vacumn leak would focus on a specific cylinder- that's got to be either injector, plug, plug wire or coil- I think.

My question is do I still have a vacuum leak and will the codes come back or are they gone for good?
    The short answer is yes, most likely you still have a vacuum leak. Lean codes take more time to set, usually, than a misfire code. It is possible that you have a mis-diagnosed injector, and the vacuum leak is mostly at/near #6 injector. I would swap #6 injector with #2 and see if the misfire goes to that #2 cylinder. Also, it would be a good idea to fix the misfire code before looking for a possible lean code, it could be a bogus code since #6 is not firing.
