Hmmm Just back from Riga and ive noticed a power problem

Took the Alfa to Riga for a few days this week, actually just arrived home now..
First off, very nice city but a tad expensive, they were charging 4euro for bottle of beer in a pub basically Dublin prices!
Anyway before we left i had the car have a new timing belt, and all the pulleys changed. Before that it had a new MAF and EGR.
Now ive noticed that its quite smokey (black smoke) pipes checked and all ok, no holes or anything.
Only thing i can think of is that when the EGR was changed i dont think the inlet manifold was cleaned or anything... but i wouldnt think it would cause this kind of power loss.
Any ideas???
