    I believe that if its yellow with black wheels and black racing stripes, that it is a 25th or 30th anniversary. (whatever anniversary the last year was). Those are supposed to be pretty damn fast stock.

    I think you would give a stock WS6 trouble, not sure how long you would hang with him though. I wouldnt try any modded WS6s

    WS6's are awesome cars. A friend just had his dynoed as a baseline and put down 308whp with close to that in torque. He has a 2001 6MT.

    I was having problems hanging with mildly upgraded (lid,exhaust,maf hack) T/A's until I went with my old VF22. Even then they were a good race from a roll.

    What is a WS6?

    The letters 'WS6' represent a great deal of history when it comes to Pontiac and Firebirds. These three alphanumeric symbols represent a Regular Production Order number (or RPO) which is what General Motors has used since the early 70's to denote an option or option package. Anything you can specify (from paint to radios to tires to engine) when you order your new GM vehicle is represented by three letters and/or numbers.

    In the case of 'WS6', this fabled option code was introduced in the Firebird option list for the model year of 1978, available specifically on the Formula and Trans Am models. At that time, the option code WS6 represented a state-of-the-art ride and handling package that took high performance driving to new heights. Consisting of substantial suspension, steering, and tire upgrades, the WS6 package gave Pontiac a world-class handling champion that was untouched by any other North American car (including the Corvette in many cases) and matching the best of what European sports cars could provide. You could spot a WS6 Trans Am back then by the special 8 inch wide "snowflake" wheels shown above.

    The WS6 suspension and handling package remained on the option lists from its inception until the introduction of the 4th generation F-body (Firebird and Camaro). Throughout these years (1978-1992), the WS6 package was reserved for the Firebird (Trans Am or Formula) owner who wanted the sharpest handling sports coupe. With the entire chassis redesign for the 4th generation Firebird for 1993, Pontiac opted to simplify the order process by including the top level suspension offerings as standard on the V8 Firebirds (also simplified to two models and 1 engine: Formula and Trans Am both equipped with the then-new LT1 350 V8). Thus, there was no need for a separate high-end 'WS6'-type option.
