    NOTE: If you run a turbocharger beyond itís compressor efficiency range, it will turn into a flame thrower.

    from a dig its an easy win for the WRX

    from a roll I'd say drivers race.

    A Hondata reflash with those mods is gonna add 30-35 hp/torque and lower the vtec switchover. Much better midrange and top end-- which is where the WRX weak point will be.

    Yeah but that's only gonna give the Honda ~200whp. A stage 2 WRX is up around 220-230whp, protuned closer to 250.

    Civic won't win...
    When I had my 02, I had full exhaust and boost was at about 17psi. My buddies Civic was a 99 body, LSvetc swap, all the bolt ons...
    from a 20 roll, I pulled about 2 cars...I was not tuned!

    What would be a good mod for our cars for increasing midrange n top end?

    I'm not sure what an LS vtec swap is (did you mean GSR?) but a K20 has serious all-motor potential. I just remember that my stage 2 04 had NO top end with that stock turbo-- I think at the very least the civic will surprise him on the top end with how well it keeps up.

    K20 with those mods is mean as hell for being NA. Go from a dig and you'll hold him off till at least 120. Go from 40mph roll or so and I figure he'll inch away from you.

    The WRX should take a dig race... A rolling race however, I wouldn't be surprised to hear of a drivers race. The new civic with bolt on's and ecu will trap in the 99-101 area which isn't far from a stage2 rex. Not to mention the better gearing of the SI.

    I protune greatly improves the topend though, so if the wrx could get in a protune before the race it shouldn't be much of a problem.
