I dont know thats kinda ify I mean thats true he still has a lot more hp than you but you should have more tq but how much more do you think you actually have? a stock zetec is 130? right and the rsx is 142 so you would have to make a significant gain of tq to really make a good strong start compared to his. My friend has a spec-v with i/h/e and thos cars come stock with 175hp and 180tq and he was bareley able to pull away from an rsx-s with an intake and his spec-v will spank on my 2.3 with i/e and im sure my 2.3 even though less modded would be a good run with your zetec. so I dont know if you would be able to beat him or not its kinda 50/50 I guess how much did you beat him by?
