A modded N/A Zetec has a very good chance against a stock SVT.

First of all the SVT is heavier by a few hundred pounds.
Then theres the gears. 1st and 2nd gear are very tall while 3rd and 4th are very short. If you can get a big enough lead from the launch through 1st-2nd gear theres a good chance he won't catch back up.

The normal zetec and the SVT zetec have their strengths. The normal zetec is good for short from a dig races as the low end torque gets it going rather quickly, while the svt zetec is better for a top end race.

"So like uhh, is Zetec a copy of Vtec, and when does it kick in?"

"Zetec kicks in when I turn the key succccccca"
