Look on your underhood emission diagram and it will show you where all the emissioin controls are

An EGR valve looks like a dome in shape.

As far as I know there is.....

I agree, what is the actual problem with the emission system?

but is continuious at certian rpm depending on what gear your in

May not be an EGR valve.

Is the motor from the correct year and model as the original? If not, probably the vacuum set up is different.

Hondas have vacuum woes when the engine IS the right one. I'm betting if the engine is from a different year, you have vacuum lines going in the wrong place. This will cause idle grief.
