It will be close. The SVT is really good in the curves but the six speed is not built for drag racing, 1st is way too long. It would definitely be a drivers race. going from a dig would probably be your best bet. And the mods he did add up to little gains, a catback nets 0 hp gains on this car. Go for it, on the track of course.

all you need to do is simply go for it.. theres no say of how good it will be without doing it.. although, the SVT is much quicker in the long run.. give it a try!! GOOD LUCK!!

lol! duh! He’s going to win!

Or you can tell him to take 5 people along with him... then you can have the weight diff to your advantage or you can borrow some nitrous from a friend lol!

^^Yeah, that's it. Dump N2O into a car that isn't tuned for it and race a car that is everything Your engine wants to be. All You'll do is fry Your piston rings and look like a fool for biting off more than You can chew. Seriously, instead of racing Him, why not just use His hating as inspiration to keep building on Yours. It has the potential to be as fast as His, just not in its current state.


Forget all I just said. Race Him at a track, this way You will have numbers to look at later when You're nursing Your bruised ego, and know what to build up to, or maybe He's a lousy driver and You take Him...

just throw a 25shot of n2o and you should be able to atleast keep up with him for awhile.

You really don't know what mods he has so, it's hard to say how bad your going to get beat. If you want to have a shot, before you race, dump everything. Take out everything you don't need. The back seat is fairly easy to remove and the spare tire and jack will help shed pounds too.

Hey we put almost the same HP/TQ to the wheels! cool I put 119hp and 125tq but that was on a mustang dyno those read lower than a dynojet dyno. I've raced my friend in his SVTF and I was a whole car length ahead of him till 75mph then he flew by me. Now when I raced Raymond in his we were neck and neck till I shifted then he started pulling on me pretty good (though I did have almost 300lbs. more in the car than the last SVTF I raced that 3 tenths of a sec in the 1/4mi).
