Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm 99% certain that...
Both are simply RPO codes assigned by General Motors for quickly referencing the models. There is no deeper meaning to them. Enthusiasts like us flaunt them because they do make us stand out a bit amongst the rest.
Well, ALL 3rd gen Formulas and TransAms were WS6 as a standard feature right from the factory, so it certainly doesn't mean anything special on 4th gen cars. It's just an RPO code. (In fact, I believe there was even a WS6 option for 1st & 2nd gens as well).

OUR car is an 89 Firebird Formula, fully restored; SOM; all-new custom suspension; 4th gen brakes/wheels/9" rear; fully custom 402ci LS2 stroker; T56; and more!!
as far as i knew, ws-6 started in 86 on the trans ams. then when they brought the formula back in 87 they all got it, but not every trans am did. Its just an RPO code, Like LS1 and LS6 and G90 and B4U (my favorite)
1988 Firebird Formula 355 SBC
