    The only difference is which body style the option was ordered on.
    Althought there were only around 600 WS6 Formula's ever built.

    The formula looks like a V6 but has the LS1, kinda like a sleeper. The T/A also a little more refined because it has leather and a few other luxury things.

    some formulas were loaded with leather too basically the t/a has the bigger spoiler, ground effects, and the bumper is different

    The gound effects on the T/A are not even that big. IMO they just bring the body panels down to where they should be. The spoiler is border line though. Now if the spoiler was even with the roof of the car the T/A would still be in production!

    If i remember correctly there is actually a 100 pounds or so saved on a formula not having the ram air hood, different front and rear bumpers, and side panels, oh and who could forget, the wing.

    You forgot about the leather power seats, and I'm not sure if the Formula has the same radio as the T/A either. The ram-air hood would be lighter seeing it's fiberglass and not metal like the base one, but the formula is a little lighter car.

    the formula is made to be faster because of the weight reductions that it has. some people may not think it looks as nice. but they will most likely see the bumpers.lol personally i like the look of the t/a more. but the weight reduction helps a lottt.
