Passed!

Retarded timing to 10, bumped the idle up to 1000rpms, leaned the AFR's out into the upper 15's and held revvs at 3,000rpms for a couple minutes prior to the test and she passed!
Thanks for the advice, guys!

I took it for about 15 minutes of full-throttle runs in the neighborhood, and then returned to pass with ease.
Noah,
The motor was up to temp, but not *hot* like after several WOT runs. Think I mimicked most of that with the standing revvs, thought. When I have to do this again next year I will definitely add a few WOT runs to my test prep... because, if for no other reason, it's fun!
