Volvo S40 T5 vs MS3?

So, I have a 2005 s40 t5 now, and I have been wondering who would win in a race between these two?

Any thoughts?

What are the numbers on a stock MS3?

A stock t5 has 218 hp...

I have noticed that the handling is no where near the quality of my old mz3..

I believe the MS3 is in the 260's.

MS3 has 262hp i believe, 280 torque @ 3000 rpm. T5 would die.
