2.3 racing modded 2.0

I was curious if I could win this race, this guy thinks he would kill me, but I don't think he is very knowledgable, though I am kind of unsure about who would win. I have a 2003 ZX3 w/ the 2.3L PZEV engine and no performance mods and an ATX. He has a 2001 2.0L ZETECH w/ intake, exhaust, UDP, headers, flex pipe, and rims/spoiler/lip kit and an MTX. Could I win this race, assuming we have equal driving skills? Thanks

Depending on which intake he has, maybe 3hp there. Another 7-11hp depending if it's a race header or a shorty. Another 3hp if he has a FC/AFX UDP. So there's roughly 15hp right there which matches the 2.3 pzev. Then go ahead and equate the mtx transmission which will generally loose about 5% less power through the tranny vs auto. He'd probably win as long as he knows how to drive a stick, and i'm sure he does if he has all of those mods already. He wouldn't kill you, but he'd win in a drag race. I'd estimate you both run high 15's.

Your gonna loose. He has a stick shift. That is whats gonna hurt you. You might get him off the line for a few seconds. But hes gonna pull hard on you.

I agree, while I haven't seen any timesor dynos for the ATX, expect low-mid 16s.

But then again, he could drive really crapply, and give you the win. You never know.
