1978 only saw 8200 W72 Pontiac 400 Trans Ams

Changes for 1978 were slight. with a switch from a honeycomb to a crosshatch pattern grille being the most obvious from the outside. Beginning in 1978. the Pontiac group introduced a new special edition vehicle. The Firebird Formula LT Sport Edition which featured a revised 10% raised compression Chevy 305 V8 powertrain producing 155 hp (same as 1977 Chevy Monza Mirage) combined with a floor center console 4 speed Manual T-10 BW Transmission coupled to a limited-slip differential final drive. The Limited Touring package (LT) also included a cabin roof. door. fender and hood graphics scheme. the Trans-Am sports handling package with HD gas shocks. Modular Alloy Wheels and the SE Trans-Am rear deck Spoiler with "Formula" word graphic detail.

The engineers also revised the compression ratio in the 400ci through the installation of different cylinder heads with smaller combustion chambers (1977 Pontiac 400 engines also had the 350 heads bolted to the 400 blocks. these heads were known as the 6x-4 heads and were taken from the Pontiac 350). This increased power by 10% for a total of 220 during the 1978–79 model years. The 400/403 options remained available until 1979. when the 400 CID engines were only available in the 4-speed transmission Trans Ams and Formulas (the engines had actually been stockpiled from 1978. when PMD had cut production of the engine)

This is the end of the era   the last year Pontiac Trans Ams were powered by the pontiac engine. ( as 78 is the last year they built 400 pontiac but used the surplus in 79 with)
