Yes, the CVCC had extra little intake valves in the head, and that was what gave them that designation, but it was a design specifically geared to carburetion, and the need for that ended when they introduced fuel injection, so in a way you're both right and right.

Mitsubishi also had something similar to that, called "MCA Jet"). My first 1984 Colt Vista with a carburetor had it, but as I recall, the 87 with injection did not.
