TDImeister can probably provide you some pointers, he imported an audi A4 TDI from Germany a few years back.

Here's his thread: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=374316

It's not horrible to do, but much easier if you have a contact on the other side. Brought my LT31 over 5 years ago without issue. Try Franz of Busman if you need help getting it on the boat. Pickup at this end in Halifax, avoid Montreal.

That is correct. The more I read about it, the more common I found it was. AMC sells an aftermarket head that is an improved designed for it, but the cost to repair was more than the car was worth to me. I sold it as is with the head in the trunk. New owner thought he could have it welded, but I've seen it on kijiji twice since!

User Frans on here lives in Holland and has offered to import vehicles. He knows what he is doing and has a good reputation on here. Here is a thread he had about it a few years ago: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=378392

I remember seeing that car on Kijiji a few years ago. Was it light blue?
