Dd you actually check that the EGR valve was working OK and fully closes?

How bad is it below 1800 RPM... Is it hard to pull away?

Thx jon G Yes egr closes
Yes anything below 1800rpm foot to the floor nothing happens 2nd and 3rd gears always dropping down a gear to get it to over 1800 and then it pulls really hard ta mark

Any black smoke at those low revs? That would indicate a turbo related problem like the actuator/vanes sticking.

A cheap Ebay obd dongel and torque on your smartphone can let you monitor various things and can help, there's a bit of lag in it but it's not too bad.

Smoke under power could also be a sticky/broken EGR valve or actuator.

Had some misting under power when I first bought mine.

We had a similar issue where at low revs, a fly believe it or not got stuck in the MAF sensor causing slow acceleration, worth a check only a connection and two screws!

Wow!

Were the 2 screws easy to undo on yours? On my early Accord the damn thing is held in with 5-point torx headed screws, which were so tight I couldn't budge them without splashing out on a set of bits!

Yeah haha they weren't very tight, interesting to know they used torx bits on older hondas! On they plus side more tools for your toolbox😉

Yes, a whole set that I can't ever imagine having to use again! I've always had sets of the usual 6-point Torx, but why on earth did Honda use 5-point?
