When that car has no smog stuff, that could be a stronger euro-version with highcompression ratio 9:1 instead of the reduced US-ratio 8:1.
You could figure out on the dataplate under the bonnet in front of the radiator. When that is an US-version the code "7" on the line at the end after the modell-code will tell you. An other hint can be the place of the Vinplate. On the radiatorbridge for a non-US car and in the driversdoor for an US-car.
