    WS7 Reaper Trans Am

    I have a question, has anyone ever heard of a WS7 Reaper TransAm 2001? Someone is selling one out here where I work...I have never heard of that before. Any info would be nice.

    WS7 simply means someone took a regular Trans Am & added their own WS6-style hood, & other aftermarket parts.

    To put it bluntly, It sound like someone made up some goofy name to sound 'cool', ...

    GM under rated the 98-02 TAs at 305-320 at flywheel so that the Vette people keep buying, instead of getting a TA for 1/2 price.

    in reality LS1 engines used for TAs are about 340-355 at crank.. that's why everybody on LS1.com was getting 285-295rwhp stock. based on 98-02 differences u'd get a variation of power in the range mentioned above.

    LS1 engine: "It is an all-aluminum 5.7 L (346 in) pushrod engine and was rated between 288 - 345 hp (212 to 257 kW) and 325-350 ftlbf (439-475 Nm) of torque in North America, depending on the application. However, regardless of application, the LS1s used in vehicles would usually produce an actual 345 hp (257 kW) measured at the flywheel."

    here's some literature...

    That's what I thought...but he's selling it for alot! 25,000miles for $25,000! I got mine for $22,000 w/ 9,000miles. It doesn't seem worth it!

    Ive got a 2000 Trans Am with that dumb EGR tube sticking out of it. Can this be totally removed without any tuning consequence? Will the Service Engine Light go on?

    you can remove it, but it will need to be deleted from your computer, or you will get the ses light, (aka the mil-malfunction indicator lamp)
