I was struggling with borderline NOX on my 300TE here in AZ too...
Failed twice, got it third time...just about...

I plugged the EZL so there was no vacuum advance, then put 4 bottles of ISOheet and gave it a run on the freeway at high RPM's to make sure the cat was RED hot. I checked video cam's at the center to make sure I could drive right in.

NOx on the 1995 C220 is all about EGR valve operation. Make sure that the valve is getting vacuum from the switch-over valve.

Also with the engine running, if you supply vacuum to the EGR valve does the engine almost shut-off?
