    Can I remove the cross brace behind the front seats?

    So I was looking at Hummer H1 interiors for build inspiration and noticed they dont have the cross brace behind their front seats. Has anyone removed that brace from a HMMWV? A couple more inches is always helpful being 6'-1" tall. (That's what she said!)

    I have found a 1994 k2500 suburban near me with a locked up motor. I'm curious about building a 6.2 turbo motor with the 4l80 swap. Is this a good donor? Would the heads or fuel pump and injectors or any other parts be good upgrades?

    Found a smoking deal on a 6.2 motor with the banks kit installed. Motor condition is unknown but turbo appears to be good with no noticeable shaft play. Is there any reason I can't swap the necessary parts into my low mileage m998 engine?
