Default Us customs. How much would they charge on a used turbo?

Planning on purchasing a used turbo from great Britain. What Problems @ US customs can i expect?
Can anyone share their experience importing stuff?

According to

auto parts from the UK are duty free. There's a $2 charge plus your insurance and shipping, according to this calculator.

oh COOL
It's a VF45 twinscroll turbo for JDM legacy.

I plan to ship to USA, then to another country. Shipping straight to the other country simply wouldn't work. Ask me how I know

EDIT: can't really find a VF45 in USA as they come off JDM legacy

All you have to do is go to the hts charts, find the first place where your turbo is covered under import regulations and then find the appropriate duty, mpf, hmf (unless you are shipping by air). Just make sure all your paperwork is in perfect shape. To do it legally isn't worth the effort. Find a Canada sourced turbo, skip the US, ship it to your destination and save the hassle

<-- does international imports for work.

It's not duty free. I've bought several parts from the UK and have paid duty.
