From my understanding, all you ate coding out it the auto lift/close portion of the spoiler. You can still raise/close via the spoiler button

Looking at the pics earlier on in the thread, I'd be surprised if it just pokes it's top edge onto view, much like the standard spoiler does when extended.
From my understanding, you swap the top out and leave the rest in place, then code out the spoiler deployment with a PIWIS


Yes Frank your right ,it a 15min job at the OPC to turn off the pop up spoiler. Then the new ducktail or any other pop up section replacement spoiler just fits in.


....but dont you need the original spoiler up so you can unscrew it? can you just pull it up when its been disabled??


Either way I would suggest fitting the ducktail first and then disabling the lift mechanism (either yourself via the Foxwell NT 520 or via PIWIS at the OPC)

Based on my experience using the Foxwell NT520 disabling the spoiler lift function also disables a manual lift via the console switch. Perhaps PIWIS does not but I doubt this.

I know guys change the parameters of the speed at which the spoiler deploys, but I don't know what the windows are. I.e, only deploy at 189mph

The guys who usually change them do it to deploy earlier or under certain acceleration load. I've seen it on rennlist a few times

Does anybody know which spoiler this is. Retains the reflective strip and incorporates a brake light?

2009 Porsche 997 Carrera 4S

Even though it says speedart I dont think it is by them, Its the wrong shape to be moshammer and been moulded in and painted.
Rpm have started to do the carbon one for the 996 4s by special order with the red band on or at least allowing for it to be fitted , So I am wondering if they also do a special order one for the 997.2 4S maybe worth a call on Monday.

here pics of a 996 option with and without the red band
