    Roll cages....I need one

    So once my engine is finished being built it will be pushing an upwards of close to if not 600 rwhp NA. I am pretty sure I am in a real need of a roll cage. What is all out there for that? I would like something if possible that can be somewhat hidden and not too much in the way. Thoughts and suggestions are needed!

    If I was to get one I'd have to get the removable side bar. I would also want a removable cross bar that the shoulder straps would buckle too. The new couplings they have are supper strong. IIRC NHRA is starting to accept them. I remember reading it somewhere.

    Wolf was the other option I was thinking about. Also the door swings are ok, it's the cross bar that the seat belt harness attaches to that has to be welded to meet NHRA approval. Wolf sells a removable option but that will not pass NHRA tech.
