87 turboII vs 95 celica gt

Okay so I apologize for not having a video or anything but it's a pretty funny story. Anyways, I see my roommates friend one night and ask him if he wants to do a friendly run. He drives a stock 95 celica gt that he said was pretty quick. blacked out tails too

My car is an 87 turbo with

full exhaust
act clutch
act 9lb flywheel
walbro 255
ported wastegate
extended streetport
hks bov
boosting about 9lbs

and some other goodies.

Once he heard that my car was a 87 1.3L he was sure he was gonna win (i didn't tell him what mods I had). I knew he was wrong and I know I shouldn't be picking on N/A cars but this guy was asking for it saying my car probably tops out at like 90 lol.

So we set out to the deserted streets of mexico and i'm just cruising by him when he flips us the bird laughing like he's got this in the bag. I let him hear the bov. He stops smiling and lowers his hand haha. we did a couple 40mph rolls and lets just say I pulled busses on him. Shifting into 3rd with tires slipping and flames shooting out of my exhaust over the bov sound.

I don't know why he thought it was gonna be slow. I guess 1.3 liters have nothing on those celicas hahaha
