07 WRX vs 1992 VR4

I have a stock 07 wrx and my cousin has a 1992 3000gt vr4, with tons of upgrades, would he smoke me? or would it be a close race

Depends on what you consider "tons" of upgrades, but from my experience those cars are heavy, but with the right mods shine at the strip.

i think he has upgraded turbos and injectors greddy engine management, some other stuff, but he also has a boost leak somewhere, and its not the most reliable car it sputters alot

well considering both his car and your car stock run high 13's I would say if he is moddified he will beat you. The only thing that might save you is if his car is as "unreliable" as you are saying. If his car was running tip top shape with any kind of mods he will beat you (assuming equal drivers). So if you want to make it a closer race my suggestion would be stage 2: turbo back exhaust, Cobb AP with stage 2 map or equivalent ECU managment, and for kicks maybe the spt or cobb intake.
