    IIRC Jackson Racing I think was racing with the old CVCC.

    Jackson Racing Don't know if they still have those old stuff though(they were racing it in the 80s).

    Jackson Racing used to swap the CVCC motors for the 1.5L engines and also the 1.8L Accord engines of that era. The CVCC's are useless for performance, but they did get awesome mileage for a carb'd engine. I'd look into swapping a different motor if you want performance.
