With 400hp I would recommend your sphincter.

Who sells a bolt in ready cage that is good on the street for a decent price. BTW thanks for all the great responses. Even the one mentioning re-enforcing my sphincter. My wife says I might as well weld it shut as she will put her foot up there if I keep spending money on the project:)!

I love your sense of humor! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lol-2.gif)

I'm not sure you'll find a bolt in ready cage. Tangerine Racing is your best bet. However, beware of cages for street use. Knocking your head on a cage during a relatively minor incident without a helmet can be very deadly.

At a bare minimum, look into the 916 roof structure. You need structure up top. Targa bodies have notoriously low torsional stiffness vs. a coupe with a roof structure.

Tangerine also offers some stiffening for the rear suspension console. This console is where your tractive drive forces are reacted against to push the car. They need to be beefed up with 400 HP as they weren't designed for that kind of loading.
