Get another garage .From what you say they probably have set the timing wrongly .Also get it scanned and see what fault codes are stored .

Agreed,
And your likely to get a MAF fault with a blanked off EGR as the computer is "Expecting" to see a MAF change when the EGR is active,
So it doesn't register a MAF reading change it would throw up a MAF code.

Yes sounds like timing is out I would have a competent mechanic check this for you using correct locking tools adjust timing then carry out a compression test to check if any damage has been done to any valves before going any further and wasting your money on guess work do not blank EGR valve clean check or replace valve
