ur engine is bigger, has more horsepower and more top end torque, but his car is better for tuning (well not better...just more opertunities...and cheaper opertunities)

first of all they both have 127 hp, you have 7 more ft lbs of torque and 114 compared to 107, unfortunetly your car weighs almost 150 lbs more... its up to driver if both are manuals, if his was just tuned he will take you if your his equal driver.
