yeah, driving it hard will clean out the engine, but... if your car isn't running right, it's not magically gonna make it pass the e-test.

u drive the car hard to mainly get the Cat hot, if u run it with a cold cat, ur NOX will be tripled, and its very rare for a shop to do a 2 speed idle, its only for all time 4x4's, mistery would do it was done on 2 speed and they **** the shop over, well most the time, Best thing to do, is pump a tank of super,and drive it for a bit, take the car in hot, make sure spark plugs, and wires r good, and a lil tip, and if u fail try playin with the timing, and retard it a lil
