Timing chains and actuator replaced, now i have a code PO2279

P2279 is the code for Air Intake System Leak. Smoke checks are ok, but hard to see in places like the underside of the intake manifold. SInce your compression is good and even, chances are that the problem is at the intake manifold gasket.

Honda has two fault codes P0507 and P2279. This is after I repaired the fuel injection wiring that was lunch for a Rat.. Engine runs idles high and then low. suspect air leak. 2003 4 cyl. 87000 miles

Yes I agree with the air leak theory. Code 507 actually means the computer can not bring the idle speed down using the iac valve.
Look for a vac leak between the throttle body and intake or something holding the throttle plate open.

The code on 2005 suzkui forenza is p2279 say i have a vaclum leak and to change egr gasket have done that and still the vaclum leak its said i have any way to fine the leak

The code is for an intake leak, not just the EGR valve.
In most cases the leak is the hose to the valve cover or one of the hoses to one of the sensors is damaged.
Check the hoses, and if you replace anything make sure you disconnect the battery to clear the memory of the computer.

Intake air duct leak

All of those codes will come up as probable cause. The hand helds that auto stores use are not accurate. You need a certified mechanic with a Genesis , Snap On or a Mac scanner or the dealership. The actual problem could be causing any of these codes.
