Welcome to Librarium Online!
Wraiths seem to have just got better aside from their initiative, so what is the best way to kit out a unit. Obviously the trans-something is a waste, as you can't shoot and assault. First of all does the 5 point pistol grant an extra attack in close combat? and how many whip coils are required to make a whole or majority of a squad down to I1?
On a unit of 6 is it same to say that 3 with whip coils and 3 pistols for 255 points is worth it?

That's not true, page 67 below the: Effects of damage results on passengers it say's:
"Note: remember that all models in a single unit fire simultaneously, so a squad cannot take out a transport with its lascannon and then mow down the occupants with their bolters. However, if a transport is destroyed (either result) by a ranged attack, the unit that shot it may assault the now disembarked passengers, if it is allowed to assault according to the assault rules."

My wraiths will be kitted in one of two ways (the two ways basically choosing beamer or not). Squad size of 6 wraiths (always), 2 pistols, 2 whips, (MAYBE a beamer)...with a beamer you have 4 wound allocation exploits you can deal with. That's 2 pistol, 2 whips, 1 beamer, and 1 normal guy. You can change this up if you'd like, but personally you need at LEAST 2 whips. This way you can get as many of the non I1 guys down to I1 (especially IC's).
Btw, don't engage a whip model with a S8+ power weapon. Hate to lose the Whip in CC due to double toughness! They're already I1 fists and such.

Does giving them the pistol give them an extra attack on the charge/CC? because if so i'm looking at 4*pistol and 2 whips for 250 points.
I'm pretty sure you get 1 ccw standard no matter what you have
