Default AirCare question

My car fails AirCare. I hear where some people successfully register their car outside the Lower Mainland, get their tags and change their address back to their home.

Anyone know if this works?

The car just passes the driving test but fails the idle by over 4 times the limit. I took it to the Independent Speed Shop in Langley and Bill worked on it to get it close but no love from AirCare. One of my cats is no longer coming up to temperature so that too could cause the failure.

It runs great, the A/F ratio is good. I don't want to spend the time and money on fabrication a new cat and more tuning if I can get around the AirCare issue.

Can be very challenging getting your intake setup running clean at idle. Have you tried raising the idle to around 1000 rpm to get it to clean up and knocking back the timing a bit?

It idles at 1050 (approximately), I have the fuel ratio almost dead on 14.7 with a bit of additional fuel added for acceleration and the total timing at idle is 12.

No insult intended sir. With a failing cat I don't believe any additional tuning will get it to pass.

Thanks for all the suggestions even though they are a distraction from my original question.

I'm not spending money on cats just to go through AirCare ONE fucking last time.

Raising the idle will keep the Cats "Lit" thru the idle test, retard the base to 0-4 deg. This also works on most. Idle might have to be 1100 rpm.
