If by 5.7 you mean L31 Vortec 5.7 the answer is no. Camaros were never produced with the 8 bolt vortec pattern, the closest is the 93-97 LT1 and the bolt spacing is different on those.

What model engine do you have? Then you just look up what fuel systems fit that model. Do have any idea how many different fuel system variations Camaro has had?

If your engine is a '95 like your name says, then yes. The big question is "Which Camaro intake?" If it's post-'87, it should bolt onto the engine. EGR and other stuff will probably be your biggest issue. If it's a pre-87 intake, you're going to need these: https://www.summitracing.com/parts/pfs-52110

If the engine is a Vortec, then no. The intake ports are too tall to seal.

Trying to figure out what you hope to accomplish. Having had a TPI system on my G20 van. Stick with the TBI, its easier to build power with and makes more low-end torque than the TPI.

F bodies were TPI through 92 and went to an LT1 in 93, would the intake still work?
There were 305 TBI engines also in F bodies, obviously TPI bolts up too if one wanted to convert to it and yes I should have said 87-92.

It's not "obvious" that a tpi bolts up, and a 305 isn't a 5.7, which is what he asked about. Hence my question...
