    WS6

    I keep reading where people are asking if their car is a real transam WS6, now im wondering if mine is a real one. What the difference between a firebird and a transam WS6. When i bought my car i was under the impression that it was a transam WS6.

    WS6 has little better suspension, ram air hood, different rims, different exhaust/ lid. They are not really any faster than a non-ws6 trans am. Suspension is minimal upgrade, the hood does nothing but make it look better, rims do nothing, exhaust is almost as restrictive as the base model. Alot of people try to make them look like WS6 replicas. It should tell you in your door code if its a real WS6.

    Look at your drivers door for a sticker that has the RPO codes.

    Look for WS6 - Performance Package Special

    This will tell you if your car came from the factory as a WS6.

    Where are your foglights?

    Outside edge under the headlights or close in near the license plate?

    Ok i read on my drivers door sticker and it does say WS6 and my headlight are close to my license plate. So it is a real WS6 right because that one thing i was worried about when i bought it.

    he has a trans am, hes just wondering if its a real ws6



    okay guy

    Firebird = v6
    Click for full size

    Firebird Formula = looks like v6 but has v8

    Firebird Formula WS6 = sameas above but has ramair, better wheels etc.
    Click for full size

    Trans Am = has body kit, has v8
    Click for full size

    Trans Am WS6 same as above but has ramair, better wheels etc.
    Click for full size

    on your drivers side door there is a white sticker that has a series or three digit codes such as AAA, LS1, MM6, etc, look for WS6, that will confirm.

    I wasn't 100% sure since he mentioned Firebird as well.
    Kinda sounded like he was wondering if he had a Formula WS.6 or T/A WS.6.

    But yeah, all Trans Am's are Firebirds (and if I am not mistaken, they are all also Formula's...RPO=W66).

    This will help you
    ws6 v. ws9

    Also when the Vin is run it will come up as Formula/Trans Am this is because the vin does not differentiate between the 2
