After you changed the distributor cap, etc., did you get out the old timing
light?  Slight changes in the timing can make big changes in the emissions.

Also, as far as upping the idle and hoping you don't get caught, I just had
my car tested today - it passed.  The readout includes the idle speed, and
if the idle is not in the proper range, it automatically fails.  You can set
it to the high side of "normal" but not too high.
