Anything on a track will need a cage if you are asking about a class. From the list you would be in GT or SP, SP for sure if you go turbo, either one needs cage, fuel cell, fire system at a minimum.

Auto-X I haven't done in about 20 years but I'm sure they would find a place for you at local events even if it's an imaginary "X" class so they can take your money.

From my read of the SCCA rules, you could legally run in GT or in a region specific class such as ITE or Super Production. The issue for your car is the porting beyond a street port.

That being said, there are always rumors floating about regarding certain cars in the IT ranks with a half-bridge here and there...

If that is a non-stock crossmember that will put you in GT or SP for sure. I don't know how the half bridge fits in though, they have all kinds of combos for RX7's that could put you in 3 different GT classes IIRC.

Most likely you will end up in SP. It's sort of a 'catch all' class to get more cars and money out of a weekend for the host region. Pretty much GT level safety equipment is required.

seems like it would be ita in club racing but not sure if car would be competitive, but looks like without cage and fuel cell i could possibly do sp without turbo

ITA = stock port, stock crossmember

you could go run NASA PT or TT, those are simpler, you could give them a dyno sheet, and the weight and they will class you

Street Prepared class in auto-x requires full interior and no change in steering placement. I think it might be a F Prepared car. If you did turbo it would be X Prepared.

EP is what mine is classed for. Similar car with a non turbo 6 port car bed. Lots of mods allowed just nothing beyond a street port. Check your local SCCA and see what runs. My car was set up for ITS when I bought it but nobody runs that so I am converting to EP

You're kind of in limbo there with your mods. Some of them totally throw you out of one class, others throw you out of another.

Your Holley carb/intake and REspeed cross member puts you out of any SCCA roadrace class except SP. Put a stock intake and carb back on the car and a stock cross member and you are close to ITA. You'll need 13x7 wheels though.

A this point you need to decide what you want to do with the car and sit down and read the rules. NASA racing might be an option. I know they have different classing methods I've just never looked into them that far.

Usually a car built for auto-x isn't that great for road racing and vice versa but you'll still have a blast either way.

You are probably in F-prepared for auto-x. I'm not sure what the rules are for cross-members.
F-prepared is mainly gutted race cars, but the level of competition varies widely from region to region. I've seen some prepared cars that are about as fast as their street-prepared counter parts. And other, well prepared and driven ones take it to the modified classes. So you could be up against anything from a 240Z with nothing more than a cam swap, to gutted a Boxster with a built engine.
Either way you'll have fun... depending on how important "winning" is to you.
Good luck

In prepared, you can gut the interior, change spring, shocks, sway bars, brakes. Remove all lights, can move suspension points around, any bushing material (even metal). Can port the engine and change fuel induction. I think you can switch to fuel injection now with no weight penalty. wheels up to 10" wide, or 12" wide with a 50lbs penalty iirc.
You don't need a cage or even a roll bar as long as it's not a convertible.
If you plan on only doing auto-x then you definitely need to read through the rule book.

I assume you mean turbo... you cannot add/remove forced induction in any Prepared class.
