I dominated emissions in my second inspection

I don't know if everyone read it the first time but i failed inspections horribly. Cylinder 6 wasnt firing, bad brakes, i got new tires, new fuel filter and i failed emissions. after around 700 dollars of repairs, i still failed emissions. the man gave us instructions such as idle for 4 minutes, accelerate to 45mph, stay above 45 for 5 minutes, slow down to below 45 for 5 minutes, etc. there was a big list. he told us to do that 6 times with 6 hour breaks in between each run. he said bring the car back in 4 days. well, its been 4 days and i went back to get retested. my car ANNIHILATED the test. he said he never seen a failing car score so high.

What the heck does that do? I know bringing the car in real hot helps. Did he have you take your pants off or anything. Or did he say "buy me lunch, I heard that could help." lol j/k

$5 says the only reason you failed the second time was due to the p1000 code stored in your memory, which is set there until all your obdII monitors are tested and active (hence the weird long list of driving commands used to activate said monitors) the shop who did the work on your car should have told you about it before you went back for reinspection..
