    NO !
    Most of the parts aren't really any different then the standard V8 Cars.
    I guess it depends on what you need. But most after market suspension parts are better then the WS6 stuff anyways.

    Basically all you need is a hood for it to look like one, so do a search on WS9 Style Hoods because it's one of the better ones. Otherwise look on Ebay or classifieds for used Factory Hoods. Wheels you could get off Ebay aswell.
    As far as any other parts like the suspension, refer to my original post about going with aftermarket stuff cause the factory WS6 stuff isn't what it's cracked up to be.

    BTW all V8 birds will have the WS9 RPO (check your door sticker)

    well the difference between the trans am and the ws6 is the sway bars and rims pretty much so just get aftermarket ones and there you go and the exhaust is different too i think

    Hood, Rims, lower airbox, steering cooler, different rack, sway bars and a badge.

    Screw the rack and cooler, and buy some giant sway bars from strano.. much better than any ws6 part....

    WS6 Vs Trans Am is still a drivers race no matter how you look at it.

    Go aftermarket EXCEPT with the hood and the lower airbox... IMO

    Strano has awesome sway bar kits

    We also have sponsors like KY Speed that have a lot of aftermarket parts that are much better/reliable/cheaper than stock

    I have Strano Springs, Swaybars and Koni 4/4's This setup is way beyond a WS6.

    You want a WS6 stle hood you can get a aftermaker replacement from certifit like I did for $250. Lot cheaper than most and it only needed some extra prep work to make it as nice as the 5 to 6 hundred dollar hoods I;'ve seen. I paint cars so I found this where I pickup parts for cars I fix at my shop and couldn't resist. Didn't feel bad when I cut out the inside to work better for my Volant since I don't have a factory lid setup.

    That setup is VERY similar at what I'm wanting after much research. How do you like the Strano spring difference??

    To tell you the truth the shocks are probably the single best part that makes this pkg. The cars ride is firm without being harsh and is very composed in all situations. Corners flat and feels glued to the road, it's very confidence inspiring.
