Exclamation Who wins this race?

So a friend of mine recently purchased a 2006 Mustang. 4.6L V-8 with ford racing exhaust, Bama tuner, and a mild cam, and 4.10 rear. He thinks he can beat my 96 SLP SS with a built 383. I don't know much about my engine build, but here's what I do know; CAI, Flat top pistons, 11:1 compression, built valve train, mild cam, and tuned for 91 octane. Hooker super comp. long tubes, cats are deleted, true dual 3" back to Flowmaster super 10 mufflers. With a 4:11 rear. Should this be a somewhat even race on the street?

Re: Who wins this race?

I would expect your car to whip his soundly.

Caveats:
* No horsepower numbers for either of you. Iím assuming both cars are tuned competently for 93 octane.
* No mention of tires. If he has Nittos and you have Sumitomos, that could change things.
* No mention of the length of the race. Iím assuming straight line.
* No mention of transmission types or driver skills.
* Donít race on the street!
* Heís in a Mustang. Watch out for crowds, as his car may careen towards them unexpectedly at any time.

He has Nitto NT555 drag radials, I'm running Nitto NT05 drag radials. He also has a six speed, I have a T56. He suspects he has around 400hp, though I doubt it due to the fact a 2006 Mustang with a 4.6 had 300hp from the factory. I've looked at his tuner, the website claims it only adds 17hp. I figure with his exhaust setup, and tune alone he gains maybe 40hp from all that. My car is pushing 415hp to the rear from the last time it was on a dyno. As far as driving skills, he bought a Mustang, that should tell you all you need to know. And this is gonna happen on an 1/8th mile track. But maybe on a deserted county road first.

He could beat you if you botch the launch and he doesn't, but otherwise I think you have this in the bag. Make sure you race more than once (at the strip) so that he can't make excuses!

Well I guess we'll never know the answer to this question now. My friend sold his mustang last week. We never had time to take em out and test em. He was probably just scared.....haha!
