The butterfly not working properly. If you manually operaate the lever it should stall the car when in the xlosed position as no air can get to the engine.
So if its sticking nearly closed it wont rev up until the butterfly operate

I thought blanking the EGR meant it was always closed  :undecided:

Its hard to explain. If you start your golf up and close the thing the vac goes into itll try stall the car.
So alternatively you could actually see if at first start up there is any movement on said arm.

You right about the egr though. This might actually not be egr. Id have to go look at my passat to see

From a quick hunt around google, air in the fuel system causes poor cold starts and using accelerator can overcome this most of the time. And as we know, there was an air issue with my fuel lines previously so possibly still some in there. Is there a way to purge/bleed the fuel lines?

If theres air in the first start its getting in after running has stopped. Was running air should be gone. So there would seem air is getting in the system. Maybe a clip or slight nick in a pipe

Not got a clue where to start looking :( The hissing from the fuel filter I'm 99% sure is gone since they put the hoses on the right way at the pump, I'm thinking it still in the system rather than still getting in, maybe in the filter?

Should habe pirged out by now. You could fill filter with diesel. That would eliminate air in there

Dont think itll ever be unless it was fresh out the factory and even then its debatable
