We bought the stuff and drove it many miles to get it through, still did not

Could be something as simple as a Gas Cap needing replacement. Ask the emission place to tell you what failed on the test.

Maybe it needs a tune up or a new catalytic converter. Why exactly did it fail? Visual? Hydrocarbons?

The fail was NOx(ppm), that is all it said.

A vehicle tat is producing High NOx counts. Is usually too lean. This could be caused by an exhaust leak before the catalytic converter. A faulty o2 sensor or sensors. A failed egr valve. incorrect ignition timing. The 1994 Ford inline engines had a pollution reduction system installed. A valve in that system could be stuck open admitting unneeded oxygen into the exhaust system.

Move out of California to a state or city that has no smog tests. Jerry Brown will hate you !
