Did some reading up on this and found that the sulfur smell is from unburnt fuel getting to the cat, when I hook up the vacuum hose to the top of the egr valve the car has a bad stutter/rough idle, while observing the reaction of the engine while everything was hooked up i thought it sounded like it was misfiring, i'd bet that would explain why i smelt sulfur.

It however does not explain why the system still does not work, brand new motorcraft valve, and a new dpfe sensor, only thing not new is the actuator.

I'm considering seeing if i can get the dpfe workaround #2 from focushacks to work so i can pass this stupid emissions garbage.
