There's a discussion about cages/bars here.

Just to save John some time ( ), why do you want a bolt-in? Like John will say when he gets here ( ), go with a welded in unless you really have to have a bolt-in.

With that said, I like bolt-in's. I'm really happy with the Autopower's we have to use in the Spec7 series, and they've held up well in some pretty hairy accidents. There's plenty you can do to make them safer, and for the price, you're better off with the AP than with a welded in for the same price.

Best pointer I can give you is to have a pro do the cage. It may be expensive but ask yourself "how much is you life worth?" Thank god the first cage I did was in a low speed car and never took a really hard hit. I belive it is now rusting away in somebodies back yard.
