Default friend got a camaro

my friend got a 1990 camaro, he got it for $500 needed muffler, clutch and back breaks. well it pulls like he** it has a hard time getting traction with new tires. well the owner wasnt sure that it has under the hood he guessed it was a 305 but this this pulls way to hard for a 305. so how do i tell between a 305 and 350? it * fuel injectied if that matters.

Look ontop of the radiator area, or something. 5.0L is a 305, 5.7L is a 350.

Is it an IROC? The IROC is the only Camaro that came with a 350 option with 230 hp and 330 ft. of torque.

the 305 had fuel injection in the 80'* but I don't think the 350 had anything better than throttle body fuel injection until after 95 or so.

You could get a Tuned Port Injection 305 starting in 1985. The Tuned Port Injection 350 (5.7) started in 1987 but could only be had with an automatic, the 305 was available with a 5 speed. There was also a throttle body injection 305 as an option on the base models.

IROC

Its Really Only a Camaro...

If its a 350 with Tuned port fuel injection it will HAUL! (very easy to spot if it is port fuel injection)
