Abarth has 160hp 170tq and weighs in at 3255 lbs.
SVT has 170hp 150tq and weights in at 2750 lbs.

what do you think would win in the 1/4?

That depends. You are only talking peak HP, which only matters for a brief instant at the end of each gear. The power curves is what matters. I would bet the Abarth is making 20hp more and way more torque or more at like 3500rpm.

boost feels deceptively fast.

my stock e36 325 was as fast as a stage 1 1.8t gti although it felt much slower.
