my 99 ta has the hood and isnt a ws6. maybe the ws9 trans am package came with the hood but not the rims and suspension mods.

I remember hearing once that there were a few dealerships that added the hoods to sell the base TA's. It is not factory but I think thats where the WS7 idea came from.

I have a aftermarket WS6 hood I bought from certifit painted and removed all the baffle veal it had so it would work with my Volant CAI. You just look through the screens and see the 2 filters and the rubber gasket seats against the hood. Added some red leds for a little something different. I'm fine with the base TA since mine came with the A4 and 3.23 performance rear. Since I already swapped the hood to a WS6 style and have full suspension mods so it cost me less to buy the car just to throw out parts I would have paid extra for but I would have paid extra when it was bought in 98 if they would thrown a WS6 hood on it.1998 Trans Am 85k miles.

OP, I've sealed my airbox with some foam adhesive stuff I found at a big home improvement store, it stayed on for 3 years or so. Along the bottom side, I put on 1/2" heater hose and put a few small screws thru it. It acts like a squeege when the hood shuts, seals pretty good.

Just got the car back today, the hood matched up near perfect! They ship very fast.
