Building a decent engine and am tossing up a roling shell vs making changes to the current car (as I need a different box, maybe tubbed, cage upgrade, 5 stud conversion, brake upgrade etc) and one thing I'm unsure about is what to do with the cage situation.
Car currently has a welded single piece half cage with a diagonal in the back stays and the main hoop plus a harness bar. It's bolted down to welded plates in the car. So maybe a bit better than your average bolt in half cage?
I'm not competing at the highest level and if I do keep this chassis had considered the following options.
- Have current cage modified with front legs/side intrusion and some basic roof bars.
- Full AGI bolt in.
- Find a rolling shell that has all the other gear including a full cage.
Is it feasible to have an existing cage modified in that way or does it just turn out costing as much as a full bolt in?
Current Cage, yes that rear firewall hole and parcel shelf is now sheeted in.
