Smog testing

Hey after unichip comes out for our cars could you use it to pass a smog test? Like turn the gas way down so it uses less gas and therefore less exhaust. I dunno just a thought

It's not that simple. Yes, you could theoretically tweak your fuel settings for emissions purposes, but what you suggested ("turn gas way down") or leaning out will actually send NOx emissions through the roof, and if you're lucky you won't fry your engine also (leaner = hotter, and potential to burn/melt pistons)

And after that your engine won't run very well
