A bit curious...(racing question)

I just recently purchased a 2006 zx3 5-speed with the 2.0 duratec motor in it. Well I'm curious as to how it possibly would stack up to a 2004 celica gt automatic. The I know a Gt-s would walk all over me but the gt is only rated at 140 hp vs the duratecs 136. Since its a girl and shes driving an auto I know I'd win but vs a decent driver and a 5-speed how would my zx-3 stack up? The car still only has 330 miles on it so I'm trying to take it easy on the motor for a bit longer to allow it to have ample break in time. But so far i'm impressed with the duratecs performance. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated. -Larry (oh I should mention that I have an amazing warrenty package on this car and considering that the ONLY things not covered under it are the brakes and clutch I'd be going balls out vs the celica gt)
