I dunno, you might have a chance, but there's really no driving skill involved since they are both auto. You could pull it out since he has no mods, but I don't know much about SPI so I dunno...

Ill be honest. You may keep up for a bit. Considering you have a good lunch and shifts [if your a manual]. As for getting owned pretty bad, I doubt it. But for winning, I dont know. You prolly keep up just not sure you will win. Its SOHC vs DOCH, a.k.a 8v vs 16v. Zetec stock has considerably more power than the SOHC with exhaust. wires, and intake.

The Spi will have the zetec off the line but in the long run the zetec will win- You might have him for the first 3-5 seconds.... he won't beat you by much but no doubt he will
