Pretty sure it's an after market crank. Either in the one he's running now or one of his many side/spare motors. I think Manley.

Cage work is starting tomorrow. Been trying to get the turboback exhaust fabbed in the the mean time. Tight squeeze for sure.

I have a Manley crank in the current motor. Most likely another Manley crank in the next one but i wouldn't hesitate to use a standard oem crank. New custom pistons are being made right now. In the mean time working on the heads.

Started on the cage. Base plates for the main hoop are fabbed as well as the main hoop. Ran out of material to mock up the roof hoop so we will get the remaining material tomorrow and hopefully finish up this weekend.

Please tell me the roof hoop is not a halo bar type. So dangerous! And I don't think legal anymore.

We were just tacking the floor box together and that was with a Miller Mig. Everything will be tig welded as it is a chrome moly cage.

Matt, not sure if I will be doing long A-Pillars or using a roof hoop. I don't think there is any rule against using one. MD05STi has a roof hoop in his cage.

What? I'd say 90% of cars with cages run a halo with regular a pillar bars. If it were my car i would make the a pillars start at the main hoop and tie them together with a windshield bar.

What do you have going on with the floor plates? Why not use some 6x6 by 1/8th plate. Not trying to criticize just trying to offer some input as it's what I do on a daily basis.

The pic shows what I am doing with the main hoop mounting as I am building a box for them due to the floor shape/contour and the increased strength with the box.

Was going to run a-pillars to the main but the roof halo will install much tighter and cleaner to keep a more stealth look.

Halo bar the weakest point is right over the.drivers head. And when it meets the a pillars it usually not at a optimal angle for a.roll over. Putting alot of stress at that weld/joint. Then halo ends up pinning the driver in to the seat or worse. This of course is worst case scenario. But unfortunately I have seen it happen. Halo is very easy to fabricate is the main reason you see it so much especially in drag cars.

You can run them really tight as long a pillars to. I did an 04 sti awhile back for meetmrglock on these boards. Not sure if he still around but it came out really nice but both work.

I guess it's possible but I usually gusset them to the hoop and haven't had issues but I'd rather make long a pillar bars with a windshield bar over a halo any day.

Love the fitment on Bruces car. I was going for the same thing but was able to get the halo to hug the windshield and roof liner much better with the halo.

And lets be realistic, following the NHRA CMoly rules for max weight savings, the cage isn't that strong to begin with. 1-5/8 .083 wall the pipe flexes like crazy and has some crazy spring back on the bender and the spec for a 1-1/4 harness bar just boggles my mind but hey, if it makes tech happy and is pretty much as light as my old POS autopower then I am ok with it.

On another note, who knows how to wire a master battery disconnect correctly to kill the alternator. So far I have 0 gauge from battery in engine bay back to switch, and another 0 gauge from switch back to OEM connector. This takes care of the starter and fuse box. I have a small jumper on the switch to the smaller pin and am supposed to run the other side of the pin to the alternator "field" wire. Is this the #1 wire on the green connector?

BTW just check with my local NHRA tech and there is nothing prohibiting the roof halo.

Will the car only be used for drag racing under NHRA rules. You plan on any type of rally/hill climb or other drag events? If so then I would verify there rules to before building cage. Would be a lot of work to have to redo in future.

Almost every cage you see for drag racing will have a halo. 95% of our mail order cages use a halo because they are usually easier to get a tig torch to and way cheaper to ship then a 75" long a pillar bar.

Looking forward to see how it comes out. Cage work is some of my favorite stuff to do. More of road race stuff but drag stuff is sweet.

Cage is done. Time to start sanding/clear-coating it and getting the car back together. Then off to NHRA for a chassis cert and getting the remaining required junk in the car and running it in Febuary.
