depends on a lot...but any car can be slow or fast it all depends on the driver...and faster where? on a track, 1/4 mile?
I've seen some poor riders on their bikes and same goes with cars...How can someone run 13 flat on a 600cc SS bike is beyond me.

I'd say you should be faster. A setup like his should run in mid-low 13s while you should be in 12s but its all theory...

The rx7 has around ~265-275 WHP?
But rx7s are ~2800lbs

How much whp is your car?
vs your ~3700lb? (estimating weight because you have an XI)

The Rx7 is about 900lbs lighter than your car.
Big difference i believe.

RX7's can get really fast.

My brother has a 3rd gen with a single turbo conversion and a whole bunch of expensive and unreliable mods. Fastest car I have ever driven.

Not to be taken lightly.

I know that you silly goose but I decided to put my 240sx in the race. Now it's not longer a debate or a race

I have an FD RX7 with similar mods and I also have an E92 with a tune, dci's, and cat back exhaust. My FD is faster period.

FD owner also (its next to my M) and they get ridiculously quick with just a couple mods. the setup your talking about is very similar to what i had, except i was running a apexi pfc and a couple other minor things. turbo's weren't stock (wastegate port and running them non-sequential) but hands down my FD is MUCH faster than my M. don't take it likely because its a 1.3l, 395hp in a 2500lb car is mighty quick.

I was doing 12.5's~12.7's trapping 111~113 best and he was doing 12.1's~12.4's all day trapping 114~119 vbox. He's cars defitnitley faster and sounds sick.
He was getting about 1~3 car lengths even on rolls up to 130 ish.

Sounds exactly like my 7 when I first got it.

Depends on how well he launches it. You have gobs more torque. I think it'll be an interesting race. Also depends on how much boost he's pushing too. If on the stock turbos, 14-15 psi is all he can get out of those effectively. 10 is stock. It's a nice increase, but not huge. IIRC, I think I was able to get a low-mid 13 out of that. Don't remember what the trap speed was though. This was...almost seven years ago so...

A 12.1 sounds a little too quick for that setup.

What tune are you running?

Your best chance of winning is Boost Creep comes in and spikes past 15psi and his engine blows.
