Your budy has an LS1 powered Firebird, they made about 350hp or 270-290rwhp.

it will be a good race but you should be able to take him with that set-up
that should be making right at 300rwhp+

he'll be a little faster on the top end, but you should take him off the line pretty good.

just verified from themustangsource.com
"Mustang celebrated its 25th Anniversary with a limited edition of 2,000 special edition cars. Although the anniversary year was technically 1989 1/2, the limited edition was a 1990 model. They all came in Emerald Green, and were called 7-Up cars because Ford made a green and white convertible for a 7-Up ad, but the contract fell through"
