y+ values in transient simulations

I am running a transient simulation that involves sending a pulse down a pipe and into a diffusing cone. The problem I am having is that the range of y+ values on the wall of the cone is between 5 and 450 throughout the simulation.
My computational facilities will not allow me to resolve the model to obtain y+ values of below 5 for all walls (this would put the model in excess of 5 million cells and currently at 400,000 it already takes days to solve).
Has anyone ever had this problem of a large range of y+ values? What can be done?
I was thinking pick the highest pressure seen in the pulse and run a steady state solution using that pressure as in inlet boundary, then resolving the mesh to obtain y+ between 30 and 300 for wall functions, almost like a worst case scenario. But then when a lower pressure is placed in the simulation, the low y+ values willl end up in the buffer region (5-30).
Sorry for the long post...
Thanks for any advice!
