Boost it, an FsWerks Stage 2 kit with the GT28R will get you roughly 236whp and 246wtq.

Those 240s are no slouches. Have you raced him yet? You should be close to even with an st. Just throw a 100shot fogger on your st. You'd beat him badly

Quick and fast? Tune, intake and Nitrous... You will beat him... You will beat him bad... If you don't want F/I, then you would need at least, intake, exhaust, tune, I'm not sure what the header options are on the 05... But with the tune and the listed above you should pull on him... In the end driver mod... Make sure your launch is flawless... 240's can be quick but his downfall will be the auto.. Older gen auto's are not like the auto's today... They are very sluggish.. He does have a tune so it can address most issues but you will be tuned as well.. Remember keep it on the track... Be safe..
