high hc emissions is caused by a rich fuel mixture. could be due to worn spark plugs not burning the fuel properly or a lambda sensor. removing the air intake pipe is kinda proving this as you are now allowing a completely unrestricted airflow which is probably balancing the mixture

The lambda sensors can be checked with a live data scanner. The front lambda sensor is the one you need to look at, it should be switching fairly quickly.
