I've never been a fan of bolt in cages for one reason, the front vertical bar never follows the "A" pillar very well at all. They always seem to block precious view and obstruct leg room since there always well in front of the dash board. A decent welded in cage will go through the dash and allow great accessibility. Also double check with your sanctioning group. Welding a bolt in cage can be a problem as it does change the structural loading on the joints and bars. There's a company in europe that specializes in bolt in cages as well and also sells weld in pre cut cages that are considered much better than the auto power ones. I've seen lots of Porsches at PCA events with them. They're FIA rated which is accepted by all sanctioning bodies. I'll try to track down the name as it escapes me right now.
