    Not enough details.

    How much boost is he running? Conservative amount, it would probably be a good race.

    i think he is running 7psi. other mods include full exhaust, throttle body, and of course the procharger.

    if he has stock radials he is gonna have a fun time with traction, which should lead to you with the edge

    I think its gonna be closer than people are leading to... a 2V stang with a 5 speed and stock rear gearing aint really shit... I mean its basically a S281E... which arent as impressive as you think... and a procharger isnt gonna develope the torque on the low end that the eaton does on the saleens... (which might help with traction, but wont get him moving as fast)

    dont be scared.... and M6's need 4.11's... dont waste your time with 3.73's...

    What is wrong with 3.73? After I swapped, I'm still getting good MPG and still have hookup probs even after I'm rollin'. With 4.11's, wouldn't MPG and traction go right out the window?

    its just how the m6 is geared... it allows you to run lower gears and still get approximately the same final drive in your top gear as an a4..

    forget the MAF sensor it's junk and race him then and see how it goes for you and you may wanna go with the 4.11's for gears the 3.73 isn't much of a change for a m6
