LU5 vs L03 vs LB9 vs L98 vs LT1 vs LS1 vs LS3

Basically, we will turn this thread into the "best" fuel-injected Camaro. What do you have experience with? What did you like/dislike about it? How does an 82 Z28 with a LU5 stack up against an 02 Z28 with a LS1? If anyone has questions about past Camaros, ask them here. Maybe we can all learn something.

Fuel Injected Camaro Specs
LU5 - '82-'83 Cross Fire Injection 305ci 175hp/250tq
LB9 - '85-'92 Tuned Port Injection 305ci 230hp/300tq (some may not know that TPI was designed specifically for the 305)
L98 - '87-'92 Tuned Port Injection 350ci 245hp/345tq (not the same as Corvette L98; RPO code B2L denotes cast heads versus Corvette aluminum)
L03 - '88-'92 Throttle Body Injection 305ci 170hp/255tq
LT1 - '93-'97 350ci 305hp/335tq* (285hp/325tq Z28)
LS1 - '98-'02 346ci 325hp/350tq* (310/340tq Z28)
L99 - '10+ 376ci 400hp/410tq
LS3 - '10+ 376ci 426hp/420tq
All numbers listed are the best of all years the engines were available.
*does not include optional SLP content or dealer special editions (GMMG, THR, etc)

if you guys want to start a LO3 vs L98 vs LT1 vs LS1 thread be my guess. This thread has run its course.
For those who haven't any clue what is going on:

HBZ28 has argued that his 170hp 305 TBI (L03) is better and more powerful than the "325" hp LS1 found in the 4th gen Camaro. Anyone have anything to offer, state it here.

Can we include the LB9 into since it has TPI but it's a 305?

I'm not sure what you're saying. I figured we can include all the fuel injected engines versus the L03 since HBZ28 is saying that the L03 is better than all.

I've updated the first post to reflect each engine and its power. Maybe we can actually get some useful information from this.

I thought I remembered reading that the TPI was originally for the 350. Hmmm, I'd like to know more about the origins of the TPI.

LS2 never came in a Camaro (unless you want to count the 2006 show car -- which I don't).

LS2 was available in:

05-07 Corvette
05-06 GTO
05-06 SSR
06-09 TrailBlazer SS
06-07 CTS V
08-09 9-7x Aero
