Drove up to Charlotte this morning to pick this thing up. I missed my Black one way to much to not get another one and this color and combo is one of me dream cars. Its an 02 6speed with only 57k miles.

As for mods it just has a catback exhaust, wheels and a firehawk hood. I may go with new wheels and lower this one a little but my plan is to keep it as original as possible. I may also go back to the ram air hood but im undecided.

Same thing here....got married and some how got talked into getting rid of my 00 WS6. Finally got the nerve with no consent and went out and bought a 97 WS6. I love the ls1 but got too good a deal to pass on the lt4

I was in the same boat as you. I had a black WS6 but got rid of it and regretted it the whole time. Just two weeks ago I went to FL and got me a 02 WS6 SOM. Enjoy dude!

K here are bigger pictures. Sorry they are not the best but they are better then what i had before. The wheels are not in as good of condition as they look but they will have to do for now.

Trying to figure out what brand exhaust this is. Its a bold on catback but i dont see a brand stamp on it anywhere.

very nice man. now let the modding begin. It would look great with a drop

Thanks for the complements guy, this is the car i was looking for and have always wanted when i got my black one back in 05. The black one was alot of fun and i learned alot and did alot with it. The six speed is alot of fun to drive. Im really thinking about looking for a set of stock 02 wheels to put on it so i can get these one off and either sell them or try to clean them up better. I really like the speedlines but i also like these one so im not sure what im going to do yet. A drop is on the list for sure but i want to do it right. I left my other one at stock ride height because i herd of alot of issues people had after dropping theirs.

Thanks, why did you sell yours? Im not sure about the air lid i looks like it seals to the hood for the ram air. IDK tho.

Very nice looking car.

That being said, you mentioned mods and trying to stay factory. With cars like this either you stay bone factory stock or you mod. There is no inbetween ground. Once you change something there is no going back.

I did the same thing with my black one a little over a year ago. I had just put in low mile motor with my cam setup in it took it to the dyno to do a nitruos tune and somehow had lost 25 hp. I was pissed at the car told a guy at work i should just sell it he made me a low offer and my dumb ass took it. About two weeks later i was asking myself what the hell i had done. Thats when i started the search for a new one. It had to be SOM wouldnt go for anything else.

test drove a new 5.0 today I have to say that thing moves. WHY does the camaro have to be so hideous.

Definately a chambered muffler but the tips don't look GMMG since the lips are rolled if I'm seeing that correctly.

That's not a Firehawk Hood, but a Suncoast Creations Raptor Hood. If you decide to return to the original WS6 Hood, I would be interesting in purchasing the Raptor Hood from you. Provided the price is right and you're willing to ship it from SC to IA.

And by the way, nice car, man. :thumb:

looks bad also why the ws6 badges if its not a ws6 hood? FAKE, cant afford a real ws6? haha

pontiac_boy
07-31-2012, 12:49 PM
Um its a real WS6 maybe that's why it's got WS6 badges. Just because someone changed the hood doesnt mean its not a real WS6

07-31-2012, 12:59 PM
yes it does, prove its real lets see those codes!!!1

So your telling me that you believe that not true ws6 has had a hood changed to fit the owners taste? Really?
