Question 6.2 4x4 suburban Q's

Boys and girls...

newish member here, have some general suburban 82-90 questions for yall.
was the 6.2 optioned-suburban ever available with dual tanks, or was the suburban always a lone single tank? reason I ask is, thinking about getting a suburban project going for ultimately using a dual-tank heated WVO system.

also - will the 4x4 6.2-powered subs ever be found (remember, 82-90 body style) with a transfer case other than the NP208?

do the suburbans with rear folding gates, versus dual barn doors, easily accept switchover to the barn doors from a donor vehicle?

will a banks turbo (or similar) lower/increase/have no effect on fuel economy?

alright, I'm done with Q's for now.:

by the way, I've had some years of experience with the 6.2's; they were in my M1008 CUCV one-ton 4x4 as well as my M1009 CUCV Blazer. Used both in my landscaping business in the '90s.

thanks! Adam Lee

'Burb questions

1. I had been looking for a diesel suburban for quite a while (found at least one I should have bought, but wasn't sure - oh well) when I finally decided to pick up a good gas one with a bad engine and swap it to diesel. I've never seen a stock suburban with dual tanks.

2. Don't know my transfer cases yet - can't help you there. I don't even know what is in my '91.

3. I've wondered about the barn door/tailgate issue also. Mine has a tailgate, and it is missing one of the support cables, so the tailgate is slightly twisted. I think installing barn doors would be fairly straightforward, provided you have access to welding equipment and a complete donor vehicle, not just the doors.

4. From everything I've read, an engine not equipped with a turbo from the factory, or rebuilt with the turbo in mind, will blow out the bottom end if you slap a turbo on it. Otherwise, no great change in economy.
