Default OEM Type R wing onto GSR

Hi guys I'm putting an OEM type R wing onto my gsr and would like to know if I have to pick anything up from the dealership to install it correctly. Will I just be reusing the same screws from my gsr spoiler? Thanks for your help! Click the image to open in full size.

If its a new wing everything should come with it.... double sided tape, and 4 ten mm nuts.

Don't GS-R's have an extra hole for the brake light wiring? Not sure if that will show after install or not.

Get the double sided tape from your Acura dealer. If you dont use it you will get paint damage on your decklid when you torque the wing down.

Yup, I really wish the previous owner of my GSR would have used some when they mounted the horrible whale tail wing on there . Oh well, trunk will be fixed soon enough.

theres actually going to be 2 holes visible. go to home depot and get some nylon plugs. 7/8 for the passenger side hole and 7/16 for the driver side hole. you also might want to use a little bit of clear silicone on the outer edges of the plugs to keep water from getting in the holes. this is the info i found while researching on team integra. ima be replacing my wing soon also.

I'm glad I came across this thread, I just took my gsr wing off and am about to replace it with a type r wing also. I will have to have my paint guy shave those holes cuz I had no idea. Speaking of, GSR stock black spoiler fs or trade for type r wing plus cash.

good info.

How hard is it to fill in the visible holes? I'm assuming it'd involve welding a new piece of metal in? Anyone try this?

I welded in the holes on my GSR hatch..
There is one big hole from GSR spoiler light wiring (~1") and a smaller one for one of the mounts (~3/8") if I remember correctly. Welded in a patch to fill the holes..
IMO weld them over just putting plugs in... it looks a lot cleaner and you don't have to worry about rusting etc.

Also, don't forget that you also loose your 3rd brake light. You might want to pick one up from a RS or something....

I dont like the replica's.

Does the OEM ITR wing use the same holes as the GSR holes? Obviously some of the holes will be left uncovered, but do I have to drill any new holes for the oem ITR wing?

Yeah it uses the same bolt holes.. the GSR just has a few extra's.
You don't have to drill any holes to mount an OEM ITR spoiler onto a GSR hatch.
