Re: Thoughts on this spoiler..

Say's its OEM but it looks too tall for OEM to me fella. Might make it look a bit silly depending what look your after. I would go for the motegi\vti spoiler (similar to that one but alot lower) or find a boot tip spoiler thing (dont know the actual name for them)

Re: Thoughts on this spoiler..

Why would you want a spoiler anyway? On a front wheel drive car it actually reduces power. They're only really good for rear wheel drive, as it causes air to push down on the rear tires, giving you better traction. Since our drive tires are in the front, it pretty much does the opposite.
You could argue that it enhances stability, but lowering the car would take car of that in leaps and bounds vs a spoiler.

Each argument has two sides.. not everyone is looking to get a 11 second prelude or beat the record lap time at some track.

To some people a wing is just aesthetically pleasing. Personally I like the look of the high TypeS wing, which is what that is assuming it is not a knock off.

To each his own, if this guy just wants a DD that looks good, let him do what HE wants..

To high for my liking, but it doesn't look that bad and if you like higher spoilers then go for it.

Spoilers for 5gs

This is the OEM option, commonly referred to as the Type R spoiler



Mugen (my favourite)


OEM


Series I Type S


Series II Type S


As for which one to get, that's up to you and what you like.

Re: Thoughts on this spoiler..

Of course I should have been more specific, since you guys take everything so literally.

Spoilers don't actually reduce power, but they do create drag. And drag is unwanted when it comes to aerodynamics. Spoilers use aerodynamic downforce to increase the grip of the tires on the road, but they do create drag. Too big a spoiler and it will create too much drag, slowing the car down. However since it does increase grip on the road, they do have benfits, but you have to be careful how big the spoiler is. There is something called lift/drag ratio which is taken into account with race cars, which is basically getting the most amount of downforce without creating too much drag.

My point, was why increase the downforce, or grip, on the non-drive tires? It would push down on the rear tires which do'nt actually put power to the pavement.

My car has a spoiler and is stock height. My friends lude is lowered with no spoiler. Guess which one can corner better?

Personally I don't think on a front wheel drive car that won't be doing in excess of even 80mph most of the time, a spoiler really isn't worth the money if stability is what you're after. IF you spent the money and lowered the car (properly of course) you'd get much more handling capability out of it than with a spoiler, or more bang for your buck. Also I think if aesthetics is what you're after, then lowering definitly looks better than a bigass wing on the back of the car, which looks ricey as hell.

Re: Thoughts on this spoiler..

Someone where I live has a 5th gen in black with this on. To my taste at least, it just doesn't to anything to the car.
It's too big and makes it look too boy-racer. Mine has a much more subtle rear spoiler (like the 4th pic in post #14).

Of course its a matter of taste an opinion but it's not a spoiler I would ever put on my car. I guess it's ok of your car is black and you want that 'Batmobile' look :)

Not for me.

When you say dyno sheet, are you talking about with the car on a rolling road ?
Cos that makes no sense at all as a spoiler needs flowing air in order to work.
A rear spoiler will push the airflow off the back and push the car down but you need it properly angled and also you need to be going at quite a speed for any effectiveness. If the car has extra downforce on it because of the spoiler then that in turn will lead to a lower speed.
However I dont expect most of us will know the difference as it's only likely to be a couple of miles per hour if that.

A dyno is the wrong place to show that.

Well I have noticed people take things very literally here, and since I didn't explain myself I now have -94,000 rep points.

Anywhooo....I just actually remembered the "dyno" thing at work, took it awhile to sink in. And like the above post said, a dyno would not tell you anything about the cars aerodynamics, as a car on a dyno is stationary and a spoiler uses frowing air to work.

Anyway what I should have said, is a spoiler uses downforce to create better grip on the road. More grip, more power to the pavement and more stability. So why put a spoiler on the back of a FWD car? There isn't much point to increasing the grip of the rear wheels, since it won't help keep the front end down, and too big a spoiler will just create drag and slow you down. So no, a spoiler doesn't "reduce power" because it has nothing to do with the powertrain, but it doesn't do much to have a rear spoiler on a FWD car and too big of one will slow you down, so performance wise, there's not much point to one. And for the money, lowering the car would be a much more effective means to increase your handling capability.

However, it has occured to me that since he probably won't be racing or going exceptionally fast, the point is probably moot anyway.

If going on just aesthetics, I myself like the OEM type SH wing. Its low-pro, just like the rest of the car. Stylish but subtle. Big wings make you look ricey, attention-seeking and a general douche. My opinion.

Wasn't me, lol. I don't give out bad rep, I just ignore people. That's kinda lame though.
