take out the vacuum pump line running from/to fuel rail. basically the tube that you would use to seafoam a car. friend works at the inspection station. after retest emissions dropped by at least 200% rating

try a new cat, or blowing out the carbon in your engine.

your car may have too high a compression, too, if the engine was swapped.
