Certain imported vehicles are subject to a g-guzzler tax implemented by the Internal Revenue Code - Section 4046.

Conditions on Which Non-Confirming Vehicles Can be Imported

By Exemption

Non-confirming vehicles and engines can be imported temporarily under U.S. customs bond by EPA regulations if they qualify for an EPA exemption.

By Certification

Import of non-confirming vehicles is allowed if they are tested, modified, and certified by an independent Commercial Importer (ICI).

ICI is in charge of carrying out any EPA-required adjustments and making sure that all EPA regulations are satisfied. However, ICI cannot import or change certain cars effectively, and ICI costs are often relatively high.
