Okay so I've managed to beat a [05-09] Mustang GT , And A Modded Srt-4 Neon [ Mods Unknown ] .. And I know these arent really fast cars but bare with me..
Uhm Big Mouth Assholes @ My work Drive Nissan 240SX's And swapped them with a SR40DET[ 2.0L w/ Turbo ] And believe me they are pretty fast STOCK, I remember I got pulled by one on my last setup .
I just wanted to know If anyone would have any Suggestions on what I should buy or do to help me beat one. Or atleast be neck and neck.. Thanks

Alright, here's the deal man... we don't have a lot to go on, so I can only make generalizations here. These SR20DET 240s could be 9-second cars... so I can't guarantee you a win unless you're ready to drop serious coin. But let's just assume that they are the typical 12-13-second 240s, slammed on 18" radials. They might be making more power than you, but power isn't everything in a street/drag race.
Here are a couple of fundamental rules in umm, impromptu unsanctioned drag racing:
1. A chase is a race
. If the cars are perfectly equal and you get out of the gate first, he's not catching you. Even if his car is a little faster, if you cut a perfect "light", he'll have trouble catching up. And by universally accepted rules of impromptu unsanctioned drag racing, if you get out first and he chases, it's a fair race. Take every advantage you can!
2. Traction is critical
. He could have you covered by 100hp, but if you're hooked up and gone while he's sitting there spinning, he's not gonna catch you. This is where UPR Products figures into the equation. With a good suspension setup and sticky tires, you can dead hook on the street. Been there, done that.
My last bit of advice is this: roll racing is really just a comparison of power-to-weight. Real racing is from a dig. Set your car up to work from a dig and only race if it's from a dig. You'll beat "faster" cars all the time if you're on top of your game.
Wait, one more thing. Don't break the law or endanger anyone. That's bad.
