Ummm.. If he REALLY is running 13.1 then it's going to take quite a bit to beat him.
Step 1:
Read the 10,000 threads about the 1000's of part combinations available and prepare to spend a bunch of money.
Step 2:
See Step 1
Good Luck, it can be done, just not easily

13.1's out of a Grand Prix? Hard to believe...... This guy is claiming 13.1 or he has actually taken it to a drag strip and has the slip to prove it? If he doesn't have the slip to prove it, tell him you run Mid 12's and you aren't gonna waste your time racing him.

Now that would tell me for sure that he is not running 13.1
Maybe, heavily modded but not just an exhaust... HIGHLY doubtful
