    soon to be

    Hey everyone I don't exactly have it yet, but u was wondering if anybody could give me advise in what to look for. I'm going to be buying a '02 formula ws6 tq with the 6 sp mani trani and I was wondering was this a good platform car and how well everything holds up. Thanks for any advise.

    it's a great platform to start out with. if drag racing most go with an auto, with a large stall.

    If you don't mind me asking what are the stock # for a ws6. Now I was reading another thread that stated that the 6 sp can't handle much more than stock power, is this tru. Reason I ask us because if u buy the car I want to put a s/c on it shortly after purchase.

    4l60e will crap out early without a few upgrades...and the rear diff if you have too much grip t56 can handle mods...not a serious amount of power but plenty for street

    FYI, the last year Formulas were offered w/ WS6 was 2000.

    The weakest link in the drivetrain, as was said, is not the T56, it's the 7.5" 10-bolt rearend. Then next, the clutch, although in '02 the clutches were improved (Z06?). Until you get a 9" or 12-bolt rear, don't worry about the T56.

    yep the 6 speed manual is way stronger than the 4L60e in stock form.
