Trans Am: is more or less the luxery version of the Formula. with different body clading (front and rear bumper and side skirts). And was offered with the WS6 option starting in 1996. with Ram Air and upgrated suspension components.
Blackbird: was a limited run sold in 01 and 02 by Carl Black in Atlanta GA. it was a WS6. that had 1.5 drop Eibach springs. dimpeled rotors, torq thrust wheels, Short throw shifter. Chambered cat-back exhaust it made 380 H.P. 400 TQ. and came with special graffics with power ratings and numbered.
there was only 50 made each year. And all came with a 6 speed
Firehawk: was produced by SLP. they took a Formula and pulled the motor. did a balance and blueprint of engine. got Ram Air and upgrated suspension, with firehawk graffics and numbered plauqe, with a "Birth Certificate" and was offered in A4 and M6. they was the only company that did a performance option through the 4th gen life span.
in my opinion the Firehawk if the greatest. through the years there was bragging rights that came with the Firehawk. And one of my dream cars(will own one in a couple years when wife gets out of school)
hope this helps:)

I'm gonna have to disagree with that. The only Hawks that got a "balanced and blueprinted engine" where 30ish 1997's which got the 330hp LT4. Only '91-'97 cars had numbered plaques, the suspension and Birth Certificate were optional. In '99-'02 you could get the Firehawk package on both Formula's and Trans Am's
