How to ``cheat`` an emission/smog test

These were the numbers for my car from 2011. Previous owner



What can I do to cheat the test? I heard that adding a gallon of 100% alcohol in the tank with half a tank of gas would do the trick. I dont want to start throwing crap in the tank without knowing.

Also what about fuel injector cleaner in the tank?

Car is a 92 prelude with 93 jdm h22a. cold air intake, dc headers. has a OEM cat and doesnt look like the exhaust is leaking.

in 2009 the HC PPM was 61 out of an allowed 62

I changed the spark plugs
new synthetic oil
new oil filter
new timing belt

I havent gone for an e test yet. but when i do and if I fail, what can I do. because if these readings were done in 2011 and they were this close to failing, im sure ill fail it if i get it done now.

thanks

Re: How to ``cheat`` an emission/smog test

why dont you just fix the problem?

new spark plug wires, new distributor cap and rotor (+new spark plugs if you changed them last time in 2009)
new fuel filter
clean egr, injectors, air filter
check your o2 sensor and cat

We don't cheat here at prelude zone. And therefore we don't teach others to cheat..

Re: How to ``cheat`` an emission/smog test

That would be illegal.

Are you an emmisions cop? If you are you are required by law to say yes...

The most sure fire, tried and true, time tested method of passing an emmisios test is.......
Drum rolling..........
Fix your car .... bud dum shpee.
