Think my EGR is gone

As the title suggests, think my EGR hs gone. Started the car after a cold soak and had no power below 2k rpm for the first 2-3 miles, until it warmed to 70c ish, same today, even now it is down on power and mpg dropped 5-10 mpg.
Possible that the swirl valve is damaged? Also it's under warranty so should I remove the restricter before I take it in?

Alfa have a restriction plate in the parts catalogue, so you don't need to remove it if it looks like theirs.
