I bet you'll beat him anyway. 240sx with 2.4 has about the same power as a duratec 23. But you got manual (auto's are the worst thing in the world in a race, the only thing he gets is no chance to slip while launching), and ST's has a different final ratio which makes all gear shorter (that's why these are quick for what they seem). No bolt-ons and you should probably beat him
I'm all for pushing boundaries, but installing an aftermarket tune and revving the piss out of the motor doesn't push any boundaries or further the human race. It just makes lots of noise.
