What do you plan on doing with the car?

If you are taking it out to a sanctioned event, the Cusco cage might not pass inspection.

I would recommend getting a custom cage built to spec based on what you plan on doing with the car.

SumAznGuy is right, for private events may be OK with cusco bolt on cage however, road racing officials are not going to like bolt on cages, here is link you can check out rules http://www.missionraceway.com/index.php

There is nothing wrong, per se, with bolt-in cages/roll bars as long as the mounting plates are properly placed and sized.

There was a Mustang that flipped over while road racing and the cage held up, but one of the mounting plates failed and the leg shot out from under the car making the cage useless.

The problem with the Cusco cage is a) wall thickness of the tubes, and tube diameter b) bends around the dash. In a roll over, you want the cage to stay up so the roof doesn't collaps in on you, but some of the Cusco cages have bent tubes that go around the dash. These bends now become the weak part of the cages.

IIRC, some racing bodies in the US forbid the use of Cusco cages for these exact reasons.

SumAznGuy is 100% correct.

If you are planning on autocrossing, drag racing or road racing, or sanctioned event drifting, you should FIRST check out what the minimum requirements are for a roll cage.

If you want a cage 'just for fun' - I would STRONGLY advise against it. The reason being, you are more likely to get injured in your car if you have a roll cage, without the extra safety equipment that goes with it - fixed back seat, 6 point harness, helmet, extra padding, etc.

Judging by the quality of his other posts I'd say it's safe to assume that the car will not see any track time and that his desire to cage his car is purely for aesthetic reasons.

Did a google search of the Cucso safety 21 cage, and the design of the cage in the generic pic looked good, but the mounting plates looked to be too small for SCCA standards. Still not sure if the piping is thick enough to make it pass inspection.

What Rich is talking about is your helmetless head hitting one of the upper bars when you move around in an accident. Even with a 3 point belt on, you will move around quite a bit which makes it very dangerous.

autoX will probably be fine with that cage.

I'm not too sure about drifting.
