Well I got it off and put on the new valve, car was better than before but still a real rough idle. Not up to 3k like before, but acted like i was revving the engine up but only like 300 extra rpm instead. Pulled off the same line off the top of the valve and car went back to normal yet again, but this time it was accompanied by a strong smell of sulfur.

I'd had the dpfe blocked with a golf tee for so long I would have never noticed if that went bad, not sure 100% if that is the problem or not, the sulfur smell is something I have not seen mentioned by anyone else with an egr issue.
