Any codes stored?

Any concerns with the fuel pressure?

Does a power balance test show any cylinders that are weaker than the others?

How did you clean the EGR valve and cooler?

With the EGR valve out but plugged in, does the valve make 2 full strokes when the key is turned on? If not then the valve is bad or stuck.
