It's the usual righty-tighty lefty-loosey...
Is this the nut that goes into the valve itself or the one that connects the EGR pipe onto the exhaust manifold ?

I had to use an acetylene torch to loosen up the one on the exhaust manifold.
To get at that one, you can temporarily disconnect the steering linkage to get at mush easier.
Ounce that's off, the EGR valve can be removed by unbolting it from the upper intake manifold along with the pipe.
Having it out of the engine bay may make it easier to remove.

You can also use the acetylene torch to heat up the EGR valve, but it will destroy the valve.
