In the fourth generation F-Body cars, SLP built its Firehawks only on Trans Am or Formula versions of the Firebird. A WS6 model could not be used, as key Firehawk components including SLP's own forced induction system and twin-scoop composite hood were added. The revised induction system, hood-mounted heat extractors, and a stainless steel cat-back exhaust system helped boost the LS1's output to 335 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. Addition of the Blackwing airlid and Donaldson filter in early 2002 boosted the final horsepower to 345. Other standard equipment in the 2002 Firehawk package included upgraded suspension components, 17x9 painted aluminum wheels and Firestone Firehawk 275/40ZR17 SZ50 EP tires. MSRP for the base Firehawk package was an additional $3,999. That standard Firehawk package could be augmented with a number of options. Some are appearance items, like chrome-plated wheels and decorative floor mats. But for better road-handling performance, you could upgrade to either a Bilstein Ultra Performance suspension system ($1,099) or a 1LE suspension package with Koni double-adjustable shocks ($1,899). Finally, an Auburn high-torque performance differential was also available ($899) to help plant the LS1's power on the ground.
