you should be able to take him. Right off the back you got torque on your side and overall HP, so you'll take him off the line. But after that I don't know. Those Rotary engines are good. I mean your talking about an engine they put in a Rx-7, but i think the RX-7 motor was a 1.7L Rotary with Twin Turbo. I mean even if u have no huge performance mods, you still have a supercharged 3800 where he has a 2.2L, but if he has a turbo in there, I think he might take you in the long run after getiing off the line. It'* really tough to say, those 626'* are tough little cars and actually nice looking to me. The RX-8 also looks rather intriging as well. Good luck, bring back a win.
