Importing my built engine to US

Quick question, i built a RB25NEO/26, im moving to the us sometime this year and im wondering if its possible/legal to import my engine to the US (no papers etc, bought a bare block from a friend and built it)

just wondering if i can ship it as a whole or just part it out, ship the head and bare block and rebuild it in the US or if ill find a legal wall against importing it.

Im in the Dominican Republic currently. Ehhh well its a RB25 block (Stagea AWD block supposed to be stronger of them all, dont quote me on that) in 26 crank/internals + RB25 neo head...

Ill read around, i did read about importing the whole car as a race built but its not doable. Just gotta see what i need to import an engine then. But if anyone has experience and pops in, even better

IIRC the EPA 3520-1 form uses code W as you dont intend to sell the engine as a commercial business, but dont quote me.
