    WS6 to regular T/A

    As I was saying in a previous post from what I have researched there is a difference of 15 hp, the hood scoops, different exhaust, and suspension is a little tighter on the WS6. Did I miss anything? I probably will look at a regular T/A now instead of the WS6. looking at the cost difference between the two.

    P.S. this was not counting the 345 hp packages.

    The HP diff if from the exhaust. You can get the same or better power with a cheap cat back and FRA which will flow more cold air than the Ram Air hood will. Just pop on a hood and the T/A looks fine. The insurance is a bit cheaper too. I think the WS6 package is really over rated. Sure it's better than the stock T/A, but it's not even close when you mod with good aftermarket parts. The only real benifit of having the WS6 is the resale value and collectibility aspect. My current 2001 T/A is not a WS6, but my last one was a 2002 WS6 so I am talking from experience and not just smack.

    agreed. If i knew better, i would have bought a stock t/a and modded it instead of paying more for a stock ws.6 and modding it anyway.
