Na my mechanic has the same car, auto so i don't think you have a chance, especially if he's a bottle baby.

well when someone lives with you and dosent pay rent for months at a time and then you give them a bunch of parts for his eclipse and a running car to drive which he fixes the eclipse, the tab can run kind of high.

I raced a Grand Am GT when I had an intake and my exhaust. I hit rev limiter in second and missed third...and still beat him. You have a Zetec, but I think you still have a chance if he's off the nitrous. Just dont mess up.
