Well since no one can really give me a solid answer if the tC can beat a 02-04 si then I had to try it out for myself...

I was going home from my cousins house (its arounf 10pm at night) and Im cruising on the Hwy...I look to the right ahead and see a dark blue civic si 02...It was lowered and it had some nice rims also...So i was like what the HAY, since Im bored anyways I go up next to him (cruising at 65) and revv my stock motor...He looks and me and Im waiting for 3 honks to go...He doesnt honk so I just downshift to 3rd gear and at 80 mph switch to 4th gear...Alls I see is the civic si fly so fast by me and Im like WTheck?...As soon as he switches his gears he was gone...This was by far the fastest civic Ive ever raced...Id say a low 14 second car atleast...

p.s. Oh the reason why I had lost so bad was when he switched gears, I heard his BOV...really loud VrOOOOmm PssHHHhHH...

A stock tC can beat a stock 02-04 Si.  Does that answer your question?
hehe I think its really up to the driver but I know the tC has more of an advantage due to the low end torque...Does anyone think the tC can beat a 99-00 civic si from a dig and from a roll???....

p.s....I didnt know the 02 civic si was turboed til it took off on me and I heard the BOV....

Someone should invent a device that makes the BOV noise when you push a button..haha that would be cool, like a speaker under the hood and then shift and push and then Magically you have an intimidating turbo then just refuse all races and look cool.

There is one on eBay...but not with the push of a button. You place it in your muffler.

Directions:

1. Take a Scuba Tank
2. Attach a BOV
3. Have a passenger open the tank every time you shift
4. Cry at night

Im considering, within the next year to get a ZPI Stage 0, or 1. Depending on how are tranny's hold up with all that torque.
