Technically, there's already a bar in there. You just have to either tie it into your cage, or fabricate a new one in the same place. This will depend on what your sanctioning body requires, but I put a new one on my 330Ci project:

So yes, it is possible to keep the HVAC module. But...and this is a big but....most rules require the bar to be welded in...and the HVAC sits right under once you put the bart in, the HVAC is there until you either cut the bar out....or burn the car to the ground.
