IIRC modded cars had been exported to the United States too, yet it becomes harder to ensure their compliance to the safety and emission standards they were meant to meet when new. But anyway, most of the time I had been asked by Americans to find them some engine from Brazilian or Argentinian trucks for them to adapt into some US-spec model, the emissions certification was the reason I pointed out to avoid such swaps, even though some Americans resort to off-road engines or stationary ones meant to be used on those refrigerated truck bodies.
