My brother is interested in buying an 86 IROCZ here in town and I was wanting ya'lls opinions on them. First off, the emblems say it's a 5.7L TPI with a 3spd auto...um I thought the 5.7L were extremly rare and he's only wanting $5,000 OBO. Think maybe he switched the emblems to fool people? If so, is it worth offering maybe $3000? It's in excellent condition..haven't driven it yet though
1987 was the last year for Camaros produced at the Norwood Ohio plant;
the original Camaro Plant.
The 350 TPI and 5 speed 305 TPI combinations were finally available on
the IROC-Z. The 350 was only available in the IROC-Z and only with an
automatic transmission. The exterior differed in appearance only by
`5.7 Tuned Port Injection' badges rather than `Tuned Port Injection'
badges. The TPI 350 motor was not visually distinguishable from the
TPI 305. A few things can be used to disinguish a 350 TPI from a 305 TPI
(other than the badges, which are often changed to sell a 305 TPI as a
350 TPI). All TPI 350 IROC-Z's (1987-1990) and all TPI 350 Z28's
(1991-1992) had automatic transmissions and rear disc brakes. The eighth
digit of the VIN is and `8' for 350 TPI's and an `F' for 305 TPI's. The
service parts identification list in the center console glovebox will list
the code B2L for a 350 TPI, LB9 for a 305 TPI. The under hood sticker
should list the motor as a 5.7 liter rather than a 5.0 liter. All TPI
350 (1987-1992) Camaros had a tach with yellow at 5000 and red at 5500.
this is where i found this, hope it helps. http://www.f-body.org/tech/tech.htm
