    I don't think you did anything wrong. You may have replaced the EGR Valve, but the problem may be elsewhere. Your statement that "I not getting any power sound" leads me to think that your Catalytic Converter may me plugged up. Catalytic Converter damage on these models is not unusual. If you rev the engine in park and the exhaust sounds muffled or restricted, then your converter should be suspected. Another area to check is your fuel pump. Have the fuel pressure and fuel pump volume checked as a restricted fuel pump will give you similar symptoms.
