T5 import from UK

Hello everyone
Just joined the forum , I have a question ,
I have a T5 in London and would like to export it to Florida as i am relocating .
Issue is its a diesel and probably not emission compliant .
I am planning to swap the engine to petrol anyways but not sure if it will be possible to import it permanently if it has the diesel engine on.
One idea would be to remove the engine before shipping it .
Anyone has experience or knowledge on this matter ?

Thanks to all
