What's the difference between a tC and SRT4 motor?
Why can the srt4 hold so much more boost even though they are both 2.4L?

The Scion tC is not turbocharged. It is a naturally aspirated engine.
Only the SRT4 (both the Neon and Caliber versions) is factory turbocharged.

About the only thing these engines have in common is the number of cylinders. Completely different engines built by completely different manufactures.
I don't know for sure but I have dome opinions. Maybe the SRT4 has a stronger crankshaft, connecting rods, and pistions. It may also have a lower compression ratio allowing it to accept more boost.
