    Come to think of it, my buddy's Accord did the same thing when his car warmed up. The car would idle fine warm, then bam, it wouldn't even idle. It would die at intersections if your foot was not on the gas. His car didn't throw a code. His EGR itself was fine, but blockage of the passageways didn't let the valve do it's job. Try disconnecting the EGR vacuum reference(and block the hose). See if your car idles better.

    It does idle better, but i still have no power at WOT

    I figured the lack of an EGR was throwing my AFRs off and i also thought it could be the high combustion temp causing a knock.

    Do you have VTEC with the EGR code?
