can you read rpo codes

Hi I am new to 3rd gens and i bought a 1992 Firebird was told it was a Gta, The previous owner told me he got the Gta story from a vin decoder website. A friend of mine took a look at the Rpo codes said it was a Trans Am, if you know the Gta and The Trans Am code could you fill me in on on what it actually is! thanks!

Re: can you read rpo codes

Welcome to the forum, a 1992 Trans Am sounds like a lot of fun.

Btw, if you purchase a Pontiac Technical Service Manual for your year it will list all of the codes within it.

Maybe... F41 is considered an upgrade, but it's Level II. WS6/FE2 is Level III, what you'd have in a GTA or Formula.

Considering the emblem was less than $20 at the dealership... Not conclusive.

Re: can you read rpo codes

Read RPO codes? Yes. Read your first post, well, not very easily! To make it easier for people, please use sentence structure and punctuation. You'll get a lot more help. Some people will just ignore posts that they can't understand.

Seriously? This is how you start out on these forums? I was trying to help you out and providing you some feedback on how best to get the most help from others. But, based on your stupid response, you're on your own. BTW, I do have plenty of brains, and I use it daily, with proper punctuation and sentence structure. Try using yours!

Here's a link to the top 25 Forum Etiquette Tips. Number 10 nails it!

10. In order to be understood by most people, use correct spelling, grammar and avoid slang unless you know the word or phrase will be understood by other members.
