What was the car like during previous tests?

Your readings are pretty high across the board, except for CO2, which is
really low.

How hot was the converter during the test? How far had the car been driven
prior to parking it for the test? How long did it sit? Did they let it idle
in line while waiting? When measuring the cat with an infrared thermometer,
is there about 100deg difference between inlet and outlet? (outlet being
the hotter). Is this an aftermarket cat?

Has the ignition timing been checked with a timing light to make sure it's
not excessively advanced?

Check the EGR system for carbon buildup in the runners that would prevent
some cylinders from receiving EGR.
