How to increase the dynamic range on the PNA-X

Hello, 

Currently to analyze nonlinear behavior and harmonics distortions in passive devices we are using our PSA E4440A Spectrum Analyzer.  The Dynamic range(DANL) of our Spectrum is around -152 dBm (-165 dBm with the pre amp)

We plan to do the same measurement with one of our PNA-X, our N5242A model in place of the spectrum.  Then to do that we need to increase the dynamic range of our PNA-X.  

- It is possible ?  If, yes what is the best way with no risk for the receivers ?

Thanks in advance for your help.
