Default 2014 Roush v6 vs 2014 Camaro v6 RS?

Hey guys this is my first post here! So I apologize ahead of time if its in the wrong place.

So basically heres a quick summary. I finally got enough money to buy my mustang and got and unbelievable deal and something i finally could afford. I bought a 2014 Roush v6 RS.
Its has the Roush appearance package with the hood scoop and side splitters and front lip and the axle back Roush exhaust and that means it comes with a lowered suspension i believe its an inch lower. That along with the Recaro bucket seats are the only things that are separating it from a base model v6.

Anyway to the point....

I have a friend who loves to talk a lot of.... garbage that owns a 2014 v6 Camaro RS. His has the tech package with nav that i believe adds more weight but hes added a lighter cat back exhaust as well as an injen intake that he says is supposed to add a maximum of 15hp. that being said i know camaros come stock around 324ish and are 200lbs heavier than mustangs.

Well enough was enough and i finally decided to challenge him to a quarter mile drag race to settle things.... So the real question is do i really have anything to worry about? or should this be a piece of cake? Most i can probably do before this happens is add a roush intake which should add max about 15hp aswell. Thanks ahead of time for the input! Really appreciate it

Have either of you raced before? I think it is going to be fairly equal between the cars, but if you drive better then you will win.

Sounds like it's going to come down to the driver. Are they both manual? Auto? Because that's going to make a difference considering manuals will have less drivetrain loss than automatics.
