What's up with that . . . ?

I saw two weeks ago (just remembered to post it) a Pontiac Firebird.

It was ahead of me in stopped traffic. I looked at the body and saw a badge affixed to the right side of the rear of the car . . . it said:

"WS6 Performance Package"

What is that?

Suspension, Exhaust and a "Ram Air" Hood by American Sports Car Designs.
At first, both the Formula and the Trans Am could be upgraded to the WS6 package. Now, only the T/A can have it.

Here's a pic of my car, a 2001 Trans Am WS6.

Re: What's up with that . . . ?

If I'm not mistaken, my 89 Formula also came with a WS6 option. Can anyone verify if that's correct? If, so what's that entail? I thought the GTA was the bad boy Firebird that year. Did it also have that option???
