    Going up against a Evo 9?

    This guy wants to run my TA at the end of the month his evo is bone stock he never ran the car before but he says it does low 13's. The fastest my car has run is a 13.3 on street tires and that's bone stock my TA has nothing to it so I'm planning on getting a lid and pacesetters with true duals by the time we race will I have enough to smoke'm? The bet is a grand and i'm tight on money to put a whole lot of mods within the car by 3 weeks. Oh and he said by then he too was gonna upgrade his exhuast. Again he has a 06 Evo 9 not a MR 9.

    He is, the only thing he said he was gonna do is upgrade the exhaust. So I have no chance if he just upgrades his exhaust?

    Damn so it looks like i'm going down cause i'm not spending 500 on a TQ then another 300 on radials and 150 for gears and that not including installation. You don't think I can get into the 12's with a lid,headers,true duals,and DR's?
