well i'm not really sure what will happen... i have never driven a regular zx3, but i once had an 92 intergra gs thou... sucker was quick in the 1/4 mile... if your car can run low 16's, and the driver kinda sucks it'll be a good match... let us know what happens!

i thought the LS was the base model.
As Egz said, take it to the track to find out for certain. But as Egz has proved, the 2.3 can pull off some great #'s with just a CAI. So if you are both equal in driving skill, i think you will probably take him.
