Default 95 SSEi vs 90 SC t-BIRD How can I win?

Here is the deal. I have a friend who always had the slowest car ever for years. Finally he bought something faster. way faster a 90 supercoupe. Now he has an intercooler pulleys , rearend gears, intake, exhaust and a chip and custom MSD ignition set-up (I made it and installed it for him), a new magnum powers supercharger and other stuff to. I have a smaller pulley, ported TB, and MSD DIS-4 with coils and wires, Cat back, highflow cat, 3.5" CAI, 160 t stat, walbro 225 fuel pump, Custom trans rebuild but not different gears. I don't think I can beat him. What else can I do to beat him? I have a 95 so noone will do a chip for me, and without a chip I can't do major headwork or a cam. HELP. How much spray could I use and not f stuff up?

I have a friend with a 91 Bird */C, I've spanked his a*%^*^ so many times he won't even try anymore. A 90 SuperCoupe + A good driver + a load of mods Vs a Stock SSEI = maybe

Stock for stock? You'll waste him. With his mods? No.

You've got to do EVERYTHING you can to match him.

The lack of a Series 1 intercooler is killing you, not to mention the lack of a PCM for the 94/95. If you could do those two things, you'd be back in the realm of beating him.

Mod for mod, even field, he'* yours.

You should be able to take him easy, my 93 is just about bone stock and my Bonnie does just fine.

I still think you'll take him, those cars were just not that fast.

Intercooler = teh win

Turbo = 1
SC = 0

if you race it.... Turbos are more efficient anyways. You'd win off the line, but that'* about it. He'* probably got a lighter car, it'* RWD, it'* geared.

unless i missed something, i'm not sure why you brought the turbo into this...

i think he'* about 200 lbs lighter than you are, maybe you could convince him to ride with a passenger
