Considering the mileage, both cars need to be properly maintained. People often forget one of the most basic keys to performance is maintenance...new plugs, valve adjustment, etc. Maybe his is in better condition right now?
Ya i kinda have the same prob.. except in revers.. the guy i raced has 237K w/ intake and i have 188K w/ cat back and custom ram air. i keep my motor in top condition i did a valve adj. on it and everything. and he is just as quick or quicker than I.. i don't know boggles my mind. oh ya my compresion is 185,180,180,180 also..
nobody thinks your a bad driver, maybe he's just better. some people are crappy drivers,some good, some really really excellent drivers with a natural ability to obtain the most out of their vehicle. most of us like to think we are the only one in that last catagory but the hard truth is most of us are not. as good of a driver we all think we are--there is ALWAYS someone who is better.that and maybe your car is running like doo doo who knows!
