US 954 FOR USE IN UK KIT CAR - HELP!!

Help! I have been offered a 2003 US 954 Blade engine and would like to fit it to a kit car in the UK. UK bikes use the Honda HISS system and am told that US do not. Will the engine be ok for UK use? The engine (in UK spec) should produce 147bhp, is the US variant the same? Is the US variant restricted in any way, either BHP or max speed or emissions? I understand that some US states have restrictions which would defeat the object of building a fast Blade kit car. If there are differences, are there methods to bypass them?
If anyone out there can help I would be most grateful for the information.

Thanks in advance.

There is no difference in engines across the states. The California spec bikes had extra emissions equipment, but the eninges were the same.
And there are no limiters in the U.S.
The engines here are the same lumps you got over there.
