Hey guys, a local troll wants to race me in his stock automatic GTP. my mods are as follows: intake and chip, full exhaust header back, short throw shifter and that's about it for performance. What are your thoughts on who will win?

Don't even bother. .. you'll lose 100%... why would you race anyways? Cops will fuck you up the butt hole

Honestly, first take the spare and tools and everything out of the trunk. Next put about a third of a tank of Non-oxygenated gas in the tank. If automatic transmission - push the switch for extra power. Keep climate control off and all accessories off, including headlights. Then disconnect your battery for 10 minutes and when you reconnect it, let it idle for 5 minutes, then drive it like you stole it (to reset the computer). Then don't let him talk you into a rolling start. From the line, floor it and hold it, and hope you get to third gear fast. Oh, and put a banana in his tail pipe.

You'll still lose, but when you do, just laugh and say, "for a supercharged car, you should have done a lot better than that!"

and DON'T RACE, it's illegal, stupid, and dangerous.

I'm not going to race him. For one I know these cars are slow and for two its totally not worth it. I've had my close calls with that before. I should of worded the thread title differently.
I was basically just wondering what these cars would do against a stock GTP. I was honestly thinking I might put a car on him or so but I guess I have no idea. Oh we'll thanks for the replies guys.

Take the chip out. It's doing nothing for you except placebo effect.

GTP's are not fast at all with those NA mods you should definitely be able to win from the dig or roll if you can drive. But as everyone has said Street racing is a gamble and unsafe.

Exactly, there is no 'chip' for the IS300

He never mentioned if the race was on the street or strip, so I'll just assume strip.

Stock gtp's can break into the 14's. Use that for reference.
