I Need Help Asap!!! Have To Pass Smog!!

well, it's that time again for me.. the smog check time.
so here's what happened. i took it in the first time, and i passed everything except for the timing.
so i go over to marcos' house, and him and his dad fixed the timing for me.
i took it in again to get it retested, and now i passed the timing portion, but i FAILED THE 15 MPH TEST!!
my HC (PPM)=224 when the max is 129
my CO (%)= .92 when the max is .80
my NO (PPM)=2269 when the max is 1037

wtf.. i passed the 25 mph test, but not the 15 mph test.
WHAT CAN I DO TO PASS?!?!?
I NEED HELP.
registration is due on the 30th, and i have to pass this. i kinda wanted to not take it to a mechanic bc i'd like to save some money... i'm broke.

NY isnt too far behind Cali, NY has like 1/2 the population of Cali, yet we get stuck with all your stupid regulations...
