    Help me out, What is this?

    Ok, I found this car today when I went out to this place.
    I have a 89 Mustang 5.0 right now and I'm looking to get a little bit more reliable. So this is what I came across, its only 13.9 and it is the v8 with the ram air. Although the price is lower than all of the other ones because they say they aren't sure if its a ws6 or not. They said if they aren't sure then they can't say that it is, so help me out. And with your professional opinion let me know if it is a ws6 or not. Thanks

    -Ryan

    Can you ask them to take a picture of the sticker on the door w/ the RPO codes? Look for it to say WS6 on the code.

    The door sticker is easy enough to check, my guess would be that it's not a true WS6 and they know it.

    That airbox looks like it's from an LT1 WS6. What's it doing on an LS1?

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    The "ram air" logo on the nostrils is wayyy to far back for it to be factory, No ws.6 badge and who the hell would put zr-1's on a t/a?!??!

    definatly not a ws.6

    I wanna put my money on 'Not a true WS6', ..., $20

    (Aftermarket hood & airbox, wheel change, exhaust change, ...)
    Too many miles for that much money. IMO, I'd shy away from it & find one with a lot less miles.

    Go thru the ads for sale on LS1Tech dot com. There's far better ways to spend your money. If you're concerned about buying privately rather than thru a stealership, excuse me, dealership, ..., Then simply talk to you bank & get pre-approved to write a check for the car you find from a private seller. Most banks will do that if you have a good credit record.

    Well, I bought it 2 days ago
    I test drove other ws6s to make sure...it had the same pick up. Same mph at the same rpms...so I'm happy with the buy. I just need to find good sites now. I have 2 mustangs as well (89 Fox 5.0, 96 cobra) and those mail-order sites are great.

    Since you own it...what does the sticker say on the side? does it have the WS6 code or is it a fake?
