Stock Zx3 5 speed vs. Lightly modded ATX

A friend of mine is coming into town tomorrow. He has a 2002 5 speed Zx3. I have a 2003 ATX with A Volant CAI, 2.25 Magnaflow Catback Exhaust and a FC 65 mm TB. Should be a close race I would assume. But, I'm thinking I should win. Any thoughts?

sorry to say but he should easily beat you...if he doesn't know how to drive it would be close.
