05 2.3l dohc focus vs 05 2.0l sohc neon

hey guys. i'm new to focus fanatic. So bare with me. I am in the process of buying an new car. Most likely a 05 focus st from my work. I work at a dealership. My question is how does it stack up against other cars in say a race. My freind just but an 05 neon sxt. Will i kick his butt. All he has done to it is aem cai, and stock srt4 catback on his sxt. i plan to have a aem cai rigth away on mine. So the question is who'd win? I am the better driver so thats going for me too. thanks Ryan.

If you have the new 2.3L duretec that comes stock with 150hp you should be able to take him with a stock motor, it'll be close but you should still take him. Once you start adding mods like an intake and say a exhaust then it would be a walk in the park.

Welcome to FF.

You should walk all over him. Then hand him his ass when its over.

well being that there is no AEM CAI intake for the duratec, that should make it a little harder. But if you buy Focussport or Marcy Motorsport CAI, it will be much easier. If you don't beat him you should prolly just trade your car in for a taurus. Oh and welcome to the forum.
