I am wondering what the W72 RPO code means on a 1980 Pontiac Trans Am. I know that it is a "performance package", but I'm not sure what that consists of?

On your Cowl Tag and also on your Build Sheet, you have listed different RPO codes (which stands for Regular Production Options) that which designate different options and features your car came with. There is a huge list of RPO codes across the years and some codes were used in different years for different items. The list of RPO codes is still being compiled, but here are some to get you started.....W72 Pontiac 400 T/A 6.6

I did'nt think the 400 was available in 1980. The big engine offered was the 4.9 L turbo?

Hi this is a paragraph I copied off of a Firebird website hope this helps , sheet or obtaining the cars PHS Automotive Services, Inc. (hereafter, PHS) documents. Options are those a car could have obtain directly from the factory. They are usually called Regular Production Option or RPO codes for short. Such options include RPO code W72 which was a higher output engine, RPO code WS6 which was a special suspension package that included quick ratio steering, larger sway bars, and 8 inch rims, as well as RPO codes Y82, Y84, and Y88’s which were Special Edition packages during the late 70’s for Pontiac Firebird models.
