Please vote on the outcome

First off sorry that this is kind of a repost but I forgot to add a poll in the original.

Ok well I want to know if my zx3 5-speed with a volant cai and a magnaflow cat-back can beat a stock 2000(I know i made a mistake in the original post sorry) nissan altima, auto with 150hp and im not sure about the tq. In a 1/4 mile and from a roll.

My friend posted this same question on his nissan forum and all those kids just made fun of foci, so I am just wondering if those kids are right or just saying the altima because its a nissan forum.

Thanks in advance!

PS- kids on that forum think the svt focus is awd

The older body style Altimas are nothing special, I wouldn't think you'd have any issues taking him at all. Especially an automatic....

Take it to the track and find out. Loser 2 out of 3 pays winners gate fees.

i have a feeling its a drivers race. But one guy did have a point. If he revs it up and dumps it to drive it could be very close... be on top of ur game
