I had the same problems on my 94 Chevy k1500. I replaced alot of sensors and modules like everyone else, and in the end it was the on board computer. Fixed everything

If you replaced camshaft position sensor on a vortec 5.7 then you have to have the cam retard reset back to 0 by scan tool that is capable of making adjustments to the computer or take it to a shop for the adjustment. Unlike old school distributors you have to be within +/- 3 degrees of TDC for the computer to compensate making it near impossible to do it by hand.
