Exclamation 07 SS bit off more than I can chew?

My friend recently got her car back on the road (Siliva S15) and she's all super cocky about her ride... so I figured I'd challenge her to a race! (Track of course, street is bad news!)

Her car is stock, mine I've added CAI Cold air swapped my whole exhaust with 3" piping, 3" HighFlow Cat and Thrush Turbo Mufflers, and Res Delete.

So what I'm wondering have I bit off more than I can chew?
Suggestions on how to race at the drag?

Silvia S15 Stock - 1/4 mile: 13.87 @ 100 mph

Thanks for all the tips!

I thought we didn't get the S15 in America?

Is it just a 200sx?

Either way, with RWD and a light car, it's gonna come down to how well you guys 60 foot.

You can run it... Just depends on how well you can drive your car at the track.

Hopefully you are tuned.

the s15 you can import the engine for the Nissan 240 the engine comes with a turbo and a non turbo type. the engine spools higher than the stock amarican engine. I have put them in a lot of nissans. included there hardbody pickup trucks. there pretty fast to be honest. with our amarican cars are pretty fast as well. as long as there things to back up on what you are doing. shift kit cold air exaughst and some others as well.

Hey How did those Thrush turbo muffler system work out on your Monte? I was thinking of the Mega flow cat back system on mine. Which High Performance Muffler system offers the most performance?
