Depending whether you bring in a 3b ( you can say its a 3b from a 
1991 200 20v... pretty easy when it has the 02 sensor and cat attached ;-))
or the ABY ( thats an US S4/S6 engine) ...

But make sure you have plenty of US documentation with you....
such as ETKA, etc...

When I imported my S2 3b, I researched the DOT/epa sites,  printed 
out volumes of data, brought the 200q sales training and Bentley 
manuals with me, etc... and brought my 3b wagon with me to customs 
just in case...

In the end, I didnt need any of it, but I was prepared.....
