I have absolutely no idea which car would win in a race there are a 
LOT of factors, wind, rain, gear ratios, torque, HP, etc. the liters
tell you nothing when it comes to racing!!  hell, my 2.2 i-5 beat
a Camaro RS+ off the line, and he never caught up till the red light!
I also kept right up with a 95 Z28 camaro (auto on the camaro) the only 
thing that saved me was i have a stick. I have beat several mustangs in 
this car also, keep in mind this is a 10valve non-turbo with 190,000miles
I beat one 5.0, never raced any others, and a Toyota Tercal,
I also kept a dead lock with my friend's RX-7. Street Racing: illegal
Hell, illegal just makes it more fun, hope this helps you somewhat.
