    Same things

    Welcome! You basically have it all correct. Z28 & Trans Am the same HP, and SS & WS6 the same HP. Just a preference for you on the looks. Both wonderful beasts. There was a slight 5 HP increase for 2001 & 2002 models. There also was shock mod for the same models. I find my T/A actually rides better than my old Formula but most folks don't give a hoot about ride except our girlfriends/wives. One negative that just doesn't seem to go away is the pop-up headlights. They all seem to break at some point, and unless you can do it yourself, it is rather expensive. If you don't drive much at night they will last a LONG time though. Good luck w/everything!
    In answer to your question,forgot to add that there is 15 HP difference between T/A & WS6, 310 vs 325 for '01-'02 models.

    LS1 F-Body is the 98-02 models
    WS6/Firehawk are more comparable to the SS
    Std T/A is comparable to the Z28
    M6 better for spirited driving like autocross, SOLO II.
    A4 better for consistent straight line performance.

    00 z-28 m6, 06 H3

    my 2 cents

    if you can get the m6 i think it is better all around. plus the 1st and 2nd gears are great! third is trickie but by third you will have killed most any thing!
    and 98-00 around 300-310hp and 01-02 around 325hp. good hunting! oh try looking on automart or autotrader.com brandon

    You need a modded 2002 WS6...

    Power wise, all the cars you mentioned will be very close when stock. You *could* get some SLP options on the SS though (mostly handling I think, and a few small hp mods).
