    There were two 5.0 V8 engines available for that car. The base model Camaro had TBI, which is "throttle body injection". This looks like a carburetor, but has two fuel injectors mounted on top of the throttle body.

    MFI is "multi-port fuel injection" This setup is on the Z28 Camaro and is the Tuned Port Injection. The MFI has individual fuel injectors for each cylinder. This is the high performance model.

    The VIN check was just not very specific about the fuel injection.

    The absolutely free reverse vin check sites generally provide fake information. To get real information, money will have to be paid. The free searches provide fake information so they can get your email address to send spam.

    Stay away from shady reverse vin check sites, most likely you won't get any information after you make the payment. Not to mention you won't get a report and you won't get an answer if you try to call for a refund. Stick with a reputable reverse vin check site like that has been around since 1995.
