Default GSR vs. Diablo on Pacific Coast Highway

I took my girl out for dinner a couple weeks ago, now keep in mind she hates the thought of racing, but has never actually been in one. That night was her first time and I think she enjoyd it.
We had just exited the 101 and headed tward pch near the naval base, and it was the last stoplight in Oxnard heading onto PCH. I planned on getting on it through 4th to "let the turbo stretch it'* legs", and I was staging at the light when up next to me rolls a car... I didn't look over and thought nothing of it since I didn't notice any signs of it being a cop (distinct front end out of the corner of my eye).

Light dropped and I let the clutch out... Hitting first with .7bar at my command. As I pulled second I looked over to see some dude and his girl staying right next to me and starting to pull.... Once I was in second, the Apexi AVCR pulled up 1 bar... and we began to pull on the diablo.

We were almost neck and neck all the way through second and I hit third... AVCR pulled up 1.5bar and we started pulling more. Diablo was now at the quarter panel. And his car sounded mean as hell... my girl is working on the death grip on the seats and asks me if that guy is racing me... I laughed and said he sure as hell is... and asked for a kiss... she leaned over and in kissing me, accidentally hit the nitrous arm switch....

Instantly the juice began to flow a 100shot into the direct port kit I had installed the week before. (Cant tell you guys all my mods or you'd be mad) We pulled instantly a good 2 cars on him by the end of third (which went by very quickly). I pulled fourth and struggled for traction as the AVCR rained down the furry of 2bar + 100 shot.

At the top of fourth I hit the brakes to give plenty of slowdown time for the sharp turn at Pt. Magu rock... The diablo breaking about the same time... Only he waited a few seconds longer due to his much larger breaks. I lost a car lenght at the turn in... and reached down to grab the emergency brake. I pulled it as I entered the turn to get the rear end out a little to I could drift the turn as best I could and still maintain control.

On the apex of the turn I straightened out and hit the breaks and made for the reverse turn... and once I had my line, railed on the gas in third... Boost spiked and I broke loose.. only a 1/2 a length back from the diablo...

Once clear of the second turn I nailed the juice again and started reeling him back in.... hit fourth again and I was passing him... It was a nice straight with a small bend in it.. and I looked over and we had eye contact.... I winked at his girlfriend and burried the throttle... pulling away easily....

We slowed down and drove normal for another few miles until we met at a light... The guy winds his window down and asks me timidely what the hell kinda car I had.. and I looked at him and said an Acura Integra GSR. His girl looks at him and says "see I told you it was a honda, james" He then ask me what mods I had done to the car because I pulled on him like that.. the first in his life..

I looked over at him and with a straight face said.. "It'* pretty much stock except for the turbo, nitrous, fully built block, titanium axles, tube chasis, full suspension setup, clear corners and pine scented airfreshener... and the girl came with the car".....

Just as the light went green, i blew his girlfriend a kiss and winked at her.. My girl was laughing her azz off, she had never had that much fun ever... Needless to say I got laid, don't know about him...
