    I think it'll be a drivers race just because an awd car with the perfect launch and shifting can usually take cars that have a shiet load more power and moderate traction. I've heard some of the guys from apexi say how an awd car can take a fwd car with twice as much hp somtimes. I bet some people on here have raced some fixed up grand ams and can probably tell what happened.

    more than likely his CAR is going to be faster than yours, techincally and on paper. Problem is that with FWD and that much tq he is going to have crazy torque steer and wheel spin i would imagine. As long as you dont go to high of speeds you should be able to get him. well tuned i cant imagine his turbo kit putting down better times than high 13's without some type of traction help.
