    Real ws6?

    Hey guys im going to look at my first trans am this friday, been saveing for three years and I finaly have enough cash to buy one. There is one near me at a small dealership, it was repoed and they got it. The man it was repoed from took off the hood, took out the interior, and took the wheels, the car has had all issues adresed and has passed state inspection. I was wondering what is the code that tells you weather it is a true ws6, i know for camaros its wu8, is it the same?

    WU8 is the rpo code for SS Camaros.

    WS6 is the rpo Ram Air code for Formulas/Trans Ams.

    look on the driver side door for the list of codes.

    I havent talked to him yet my father is dealing with it, hes been a mechanic for 30 years and worked at dealerships so i just let him handel it, it looks good in the pictures but so did the last one we went to see, and that needed paint work, interior work, a rear end rebuild, and the ses light came on before it got off the lot. I figure it can only go up from there so well see.

    So the car was repainted, and the door sticker with the repo codes was sprayed with degreaser and has no codes on it, how hard is it to get a new one? Is it to much of a gamble to buy a car when you dont know if its a real ws6? can i check the vin and see if its a ws6?

    make sure you typed in the VIN correctly, I highly doubt the decoder is wrong. when you say correct dash lights you mean the light that says '1 -> 4' or 'skip shift'
