Default 96/97 WS6 hood, oem steel or fiberglass???

I have a WS6 that has a ram air hood on it, that I have confirmed is a WS6 Trans Am. It has a fiberglass hood on it... Im getting conflicting information on whether this is OEM or not. Some are telling me that it should be steel?? I suppose the factory one could have been damaged and replaced with aftermarket....

Anyone know of anwhere that shows actual information on these so I can tell whether I have an OEM hood or not?

All WS6 hoods are fiberglass I know for a fact since I own one. Standard TAs, Formulas & firebirds got a steel hood.

Damn, I wish you would have had this hood 6 months ago. I would have drove out and got it, I'm only 20 minutes away.
