    ud pulleys will help throttle response and will help free up some power due to lower drag on the engine.

    I know this is an old post But a 98 to 2002 Trans Am motor is way different from a 98 to 2002 WS6 motor they're not the same in horsepower whatsoever Cam's intake exhaust even computer program is a lot more aggressive in the WS6 package and for everyone saying their regular Trans Am beat the WS6 package by two car length or even one car length has a good imagination unless they were racing a V6 Trans Am to look like a WS6 I put my WS6 on the dyno which is a 5.7 with the LS6 intake LS6 cam bigger injectors aggressive program full tuned exhaust these are all things a regular Trans Am does not come with my numbers 348 horsepower 333 torque also the WS6 comes with 373 gear ratio regular trans are 343 thanks for reading feel free to comment I would like to hear your thoughts

    Welcome to the LS1 party. You might be 14 years late, but its never too late to read up on some facts. Search around here and you'll find that a couple of your claims are just plain wrong. For example, GM never put a 3.73 rear gear in any 4th gen F-body, and that the LS1 in a WS6/SS is different from the same year non-WS6 Trans Am / Formula or had a different factory tune. Sure, GM rated them at different HP levels, but the only reason they could legitimately do that is that the WS6/SS installations provided a freer-flowing intake and exhaust. The engine assemblies and PCM programing themselves were identical within the same model year. But seeing as this was only your 2nd post, its understandable that you might not know everything there is about the LS1 f-bodies.

    The numbers you're posting seem appropriate to a car that HAS bolt-ons/tune that you are describing. Did you buy your car used? Did it come with intake/headers/exhaust already installed?

    Here you guys go.....read this and it will explain the differences between the yrs.

    Differences between the f-body years


    WS6 package birds had only a hood, air lid tray, 17" wheels, some yrs dual tip exhaust, beefier sway bars over non WS6 cars, and Rack & Pinon. Engine, transmission and gear ratio were all the same with exception between A4 vs M6's. A4-273 gr and M6 342 GR.

    Firehawks - SLP intake, A different hood, SLP exhaust, and birth certificate.


    Now if you want to get really nit picky...
    98's had the bigger of the cams over 98-02 yrs however they also had the crappiest heads. 99's suffered from smaller injectors 26lb vs 28lb. 01 & 02's got the LS6 intake but still had a slightly smaller cam vs the 98's.



    Going toe to toe any 4th Gen to 4th gen being factory (no mods and same tires) it all comes down to drivers skill.

    M6's will launch better however A4's can shift faster than M6's can. So again it all comes down to drivers skill.
