As much as I really don't want to help you set the wrong time, another
option is to add code in ntpd to maintain custom offset.  I did this in
1998 to test for Y2K bugs; timestamps from outside were increased by
2y.  Either that or the local clock was reduced by 2y.   It wasn't that
hard to do, and then my machine ran exactly 2 years fast, to the second.
(I am pretty sure I no longer have the code.)
