^^could be there are a few key factors in it. 1 your car is auto which we all know sucks alot of power but 2 maybe his cam timming is better than yours and his being a manuel then those two factors alone could be why he beat you not to mention he must pretty good at driving/shifting. remember the camtimming on the zetec is very loose from the factory some have better cam timming than others that is why some dyno at 100hp and some has high has 15 hp .

Ok ,well something i would like to ask then, if my car was setup for thin air from like around the colorado mountains and now its in arkansas where the air is thicker. would it make any difference with the hp it makes with my cai or car itself ? then again i may just be thinking of something that is not even real.
