Default d15b7 failed emissions. any tricks to pass?

so heres the story. i had a b16 in my dx hatch but it wouldnt pass emissions testing. so i swapped in a b7 nd what do you know the single cam did WORSE than the b series! FML! heres the readings.

hc standard is 1.40 my reading was 1.56

co standard is 20.00 my reading was 25.70

nox standard is 3.00 my reading was 0.06

i was using 2 cat converters. i now have 1 oem cat on the exhaust. ive read where unplugging a fuel injector helps choke off some fuel. anyone ever tried that before? ive owned this ef since 08 and have yet to get plates on it. i hate this county i live in

lol, bottle of rubbing alcohol(highest you can find, 91 if you can), pour it into a quarter tank of gas. drive around for half an hour to get your cat running really hot, then get it re tested.

readings should come out at 0. after that drive around a little to burn some more gas off, then re fill.
