Performance, Brainstorming & Tuning Talk about modifications, or anything else associated with performance enhancements. Have a new idea for performance/reliability? Post it here. No idea is stupid! (please use Detailing and Appearance for cosmetic ideas)

Firebirds are the ****, but I'm more into Chevy and the Camaro SS models

Default Tough call

They are both beautiful cars.

Exterior wise, I like the permanent headlights on the SS as opposed to the "hideaway" ones on the WS6. When the hideaway lights break, it looks terrible when you see one up and one down. I also think that the WS6 is a little more "in your face" looking than the SS, which is more of a sleeper. (The Ram Air hood on the WS6 is more prominent than the hood scoop on the SS.) A Firehawk, however, does away with some of the “in your face” attitude and has more power to boot. How can you dislike that?

Interior wise, there is no comparison. (Yes, I am Pontiac biased.) On the WS6, the gauges are all bordered, the stereo looks and sounds better, and everything is red-lit at night. This may seem stupid to some of you, but, the steering wheel on the SS is ugly. I looks like it belongs in an Impala.

Default Quite the performance indeed...

Prior to 2002, SLP Firehawks had 335 horsepower and 345 lb-ft. of torque. However, thanks to a new exhaust system, 2002 SLP Firehawks were bumped to 345 horsepower and 350 lb-ft. of torque.

Times for a 2002 Firehawk are: 0-60 mph in 4.9 and the 1/4 mile in 13.4.

You know you all have a Pontaic and if you were true lovers than the answer should be ws6 trans am. I am a trans am nut so I know that the ws6 is the only way to go.
