From my reading here it is a very big pain unless you find an importer to pay and do the work. There are stories here. Look those up and read through. Good luck! I believe it has been done though.

Fuel Economy: And the miles just keep ticking away

The DOT and EPA have regulations and paperwork you will need, and I am unsure as to the Dieselgate issue. I imported Windex's B4V a few years ago and it wasn't a bad process at all, just took a few weeks for the paperwork. There are some TDI's in Canada that can't be imported because they don't meet the requirements, but I remember finding a list somewhere online and it was a very small list.
'97 B4: 453,000 miles Malone 3, PP520's, Stage 2 cam, SBC3, ARP studs, 2 1/4" exhaust, 2.5" Cat, no mufflers or EGR.
'96 B4V: 356,000 miles Malone 2+, PP520's, 6 speed, 02J short shifter, E-Codes, G60 brakes, Evo plate, DMF, stainless exhaust, heated leathers, cold weather package
