    lol it wouldnt be ruining it lol, their was alot made that is a formula, but some people will say that your posing if you throw the wing and ram air hood, but personally I like these cars better with atleast the ram air hood. But its your car you do what you wish with it, dont worry about what other people really think imo!!

    well the reason i ask if i would be ruining it is because i have done some research and i know an 02 formula with ttops is pretty rare

    lol doesnt really mean nothing these cars is not worth as much as you think they are, shit I believe on the taxes on my car it said my 2000 ws6 t/a was only with 6 grand lol. The only ones that is really worth it is the ones that was garage queens and have like a few thousand miles on them, and I only see those go for around 20g from a dealer. Now their is some people with heavily modded cars that look for those higher prices because of the aftermarket parts on them and what not. But just because you put aftermarket parts on a car doesnt mean your going to be able to sale them for more!!

    Rare/collectible LS1s are the Hennesey models, Berger models, and the like. You can even consider the NHRA model rare simply for the RPO code.
    Considering every 02 formula had the same power train, creature features and so on, the fact that not many t-top formula were made does it make it collectible rare.
    That being said, get the ram air hood and leave the formula spoiler.

    I would leave the spoiler to, just cause I have always loved them spoiler loved the trans am's to, until I bought one and had to start washing it

    IMHO at least do the hood. I considered doing a spoiler for my Formula but decided to stick with the Formula looks because I like it that way. But its totally up to you what you wanna do and if you don't like it, its easily reversible.

    1998 Trans Am WS6 'Vert

    Once source I have shows that 901 '02 Formulas were built. ALL had t-tops since they were standard on Formulas in '02, so there is nothing "special" about having t-tops this year. CompNine's database contains only 639 of these '02 Formulas, of those 344 were A4 and 295 were M6.

    Embrace your Formula's wing! It is what sets it apart from the run-of-the-mill T/A. While the last WS6 Formula was built in '00, I see no problem w/ adding a ram-air hood since at least cosmetically, this is a "factory combination" (Formula + WS6). Just don't put a WS6 badge on the bumper.

    On the other hand, Formulas w/ T/A wings, with the exception of those few LT1 Formula Firehawks, just never rolled off the line and your car ends up looking bastardized.

    Formulas look sick with a ram air hood and some fat wheels out back or just the speedlines

    oh really? i did not know that the ttops where standard on that year, i cant remember the source i was going off of but it said there where only 900 formulas produced that year and about 400 were ttops and about 300 where automatics. ill be a little more careful before i go with one site on what was produced now haha

    Sadly now demodded :(

    My buddy has an 01 Formula but he also has a WS6 hood and wing painted the same color as the car. He changes images according to his whim.

    Well the hood will defiantly make it.look better. I had a normal TA and added a aftermarket WS6 hood amd live it. Nor badges or anything to try to.pass if off. I tell people it's just a TA. Remember RAM Air goods Nd fiberglass.so keep.you factory hood stored.away safely just incase the ram air het damaged. Now for the rear wing you need a TA hatch and spoiler both so if you and.find one it usually isn't cheap plus.you.usually have to paint it. Now do what you like bit always keep the stock body parts since the next owner may not share your taste. Aside from the RAM air hood working good with my Volant and looking a little more aggressive I rather have the normal.metal TA hood since the fit is better on the steel hood.
