    all V8 firebirds start off as formulas then get upgraded to whatever model.
    the horsepower between all the cars is the same more or less give or take 10 rear wheel horsepower.

    So the basic model V8 LS1 is a Firebird Formula

    And they can be upgraded to either a Trans Am, Or WS6? Or is it a Tran Am WS6?

    '98-00 formula WS6 --320hp
    '98-00 T/A -------- 305hp
    '98-00 T/A WS6 ---- 320hp

    '01-02 formula - -----310hp
    no '01-'02 formula WS6
    '01-02 T/A - ---------310hp
    '01-02 T/A WS6 ------325hp

    Yeah I wish my formy was a WS.6. Personally I like the Formula front facia better than the TA. The spoiler I could go either way on. Depends on the mood I'm in.
