Default 2002 Altima SE vs 1999 Civic Si?

I currently bought an 02 Nissan Altima SE. I have no mind in doubt that this car is pretty fast stock pushing 240 hp. A friend of mine wants to race me, he has 99 Honda Civic Si with turbo and other mods. What would be the outcome of this race? I don't really mind if I lose, just as long as I don't get dominated lol.

Should be a close race if his turbo & mods do not put out over 70 hp.

The Honda Civic Si, will not dominate you... it will probably win, but it your car won't go down without a fight. The Honda civc will fight back, but this will be a very close race. if he has a manual trany and hes gonna redline his car, then he may just win, but if you have a manual trany. and redline your car, you will probably win, but the mods on his car, just might be able to be pushed a little harder to beat your car, but anyways, we wish you the best of luck to not get dominated!

It all depends on the setup of the Civic if is a very conservative turbo setup it will be a very close race.But if is an aggresive setup prepare to get smoke pretty bad.This is assuming that but drivers know how to drive.
