Question regarding FCC cert and modules

If one were to bring a European radio that is not FCC certified to the U.S. and installs an aftermarket module that is FCC certified (like xps), would the radio be legal to use in the U.S.?

Should be fine since the 2.4Ghz modules are self contained transmitters.

As long as the original RF portion of the radio is disabled (not transmitting), the box itself becomes a passive device and does not require an FCC ID. The RF module being used in conjunction with that device must be FCC certified by law. The AMA has also officially stated that all AMA members must be using FCC certified radio systems.
