not all came with hood scoop's,or your hood could have been changed out.


The only Firebirds with "hood scoops" are WS6's. They have the optional Ram Air/Handling package that includes the Ram Air hood, Bilstein shocks, and an SLP cat-back exhaust.


The info above is mostly correct. But no your car does not have the Ws.6 package. Contrary to popular belief ( This has been proven on the dyno time after time) a WS.6 is no faste than a normal Trans Am or Formula. They do however have, Bilstein or Decarbon shocks, adjusted spring rates, higher resale value, slightly tuned exhaust (highly meniscule), among a few im probably forgetting.

The ram air has no effect on a dyno, but at speed they do give a small boost to hp.


WS6 car dont have bilstein shocks or slp cat-back. thats the firehawks. ws6's do have a diff muffler than a normal TA though
