EM can only do a local minimization, and there is no good reason why 
that should show a marked improvement on an arbitrary homology model.

Short MD will also be unlikely to do anything useful, because it is 
strongly determined by the initial conditions. So GROMACS is unlikely to 
be the tool you need for this problem, nor this list the place to find 
it. I would consult the homology modelling literature and software tools.
