It's apples and oranges, you can get a WS6 Formula too. The main difference between the formula and the TA is all the extra weight from the ground effects. Oh and the formula is faster

probably, but damn the trans ams look freaking bad ass..... but yeah differences are just the looks between trans am and formula but the ws6 has an intake and strut bar(?) and i thought maybe suspension mods? someone correct me if im wrong

My rides:
'97 Mitsubishi Eclipse-sold
'95 Trans Am-sold
new car: '01 Bullitt mustang- finally fixed. SLP catback. loud as hell. slow as hell.
Oil leak? What oil leak? That puddle under the car is just sweat from all that horsepower.

You're absolutely right! Plus, the WS-6 is more exclusive, especially the 96-98 models, after that, production shot up.

You can get a WS6 formula.

Trans Am Vs. Formula:

Foglights, different front clip, side skirts, different rear clip, different tailight center piece.

WS6 Vs. Non WS6:

17" rims 275 tires on all 4 corners, bigger sway bars, hood/ramair, rear badge, exhaust, springs, ... more?
WS6 Formula:

WS6 Trans Am:


97 Trans Am LT1
Nothing compared to the LSx/L67/VQ... NOTHING.
00 YZF-R6
It'll run 10s, but a stock LS1 could take it... EASY.
