EFI=Eletronic Fuel Injection
CPI=Center Port Injection
TBI=Throttle Body Injection (Not to be rude but in the first post it has this as Throttle Body Intake but when the TBI engine came out it was called Throttle Body Injection because they was just switching over to TB from carbs and it is a direct replacement for carbs.)

After doing a little bit of research, the G-Body platform is actually 1981-1988. According to search results, your 78-79 Monte's are A-Body.

The General Motors G platform (also called G-body) was an automobile platform designation used for mid-sized rear wheel drive cars from 1982 to 1988. G-bodies began production designated as A-body cars in 1978, but were redesignated to G when the new front wheel drive A-body was introduced in 1982.
In 1988, most G-body models were moved to the new front wheel drive GM W platform, although the Pontiac Bonneville moved to the H-body. GM later used the GM G platform (FWD) designation for unrelated full-sized cars.
G-bodies were some of the last cars to follow the classic muscle car formula, remaining popular while most mid-sized cars moved to front wheel drive. They were also raced in NASCAR.
The G-body designation was originally used for 1969–1972 Pontiac Grand Prix and 1970–1972 Chevrolet Monte Carlo personal luxury coupes. Between 1973 and 1981 the coupes with formal rooflines were designated as A-Special and after 1982 dubbed as the G-Special. These special coupes included Monte Carlo, Grand Prix, Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme and Buick Regal two door models.

LS & LT just mean what trim level that car is and are your lower priced options.
LS, 1LT, 2LT, LTZ and then the most options being the SS. Always my choice...lol

Thanks - noticed your Avatar is a silver SS - is it an '06 or '07? I have a silver '07 SS and love it. Nothing but an SS always. I have had 3 Monte's and all have been an SS.

"LS" stands for Luxury Sport. I'm still trying to look up "LT", which is what I have (2007).

If I had to guess, I would think LT stood for Luxury Touring. But that's just a guess on my part. I think different manufacturers sometimes use different words for the same letter combinations. Luxury Sport, Luxury Sedan for example. But I've always understood LS as Luxury Sport.

Possum, your link didn't work for me.

for sure i know these ones: SS is super sport, LS is luxury sport, LT stands for level trim a model designation gm started using and 1LT 2LT etc are the real models. SC was a sport coupe. and then there was the aerocoupe, only 200 aero's were sold to the public for the 1986 model year!!!
