the formula usually comes with less options and as the last poster said it comes with different bumpers and no ground effects... a formula is usually a bit lighter than a trasn am because of the less options...
i had a dealer and MECHANIC at my local pontiac tell me that the formula is just a "cruising car" and not made to be like a trans am... they said that the suspension, motor and tranny in my 1995 formula were different than a trans am.. i could not believe i was actually hearing that! i just kinda shook my head, smiled and gave him the "uh huh" and nod.... and i am to trust this idiot to work on my car?!?

so basically, it was a way to have the firebird look with the ls1 motor?

No ground effects, and the base Firebird spoiler.
There were fewer Formula WS6s made, so they are more rare (and more expensive used?).

formula trans am w/a ws6 pckg.
a trans am is a formula.
ws6 is a formula
its all the same
unless you are talking a bout a firehawk which is:
a formula with a firehawk package...(susp. and wheels no ram air)

Thanks to MadSeason for finally stating this correctly. Firebird--->Formula--->Trans Am. The Firebird has a V6. The Formula is the same bodystyle as the Firebird, but gets the Trans Am V8 engine. The Trans Am has the V8 engine, but gets different front and rear bumpers and a different spoiler.
"WS6 an option for Formula's 98-00 and Trans Ams 98-02 Added Ram Air and options for a suspension package."

No prob, MadSeason!
Like Joe Friday use to say, "The facts, ma'am.. Just the facts."
I might not be an expert, but I play one on TV!
