My father is searching for the carbon fiber type-r wing. Does anyone know if you are able to buy the parts that are on a type-r, and possibly who would sell them? I've talked him out of buying a Ferrari in the next year, and instead just to modify his 91'. He's probably going to purchase an aftermarket exhaust (preferably Taitec LW center exit) and a few interior mods. The car is currently stock except for 17" and 18" Technos. He really likes the looks of the type-r wing, and is very interested. Heres a link to a picture of what the wing looks like. http://www.nsxprime.com/FAQ/General/modelinfo/r2-a2.jpg hehe, who am I kidding, I'm sure you guys know what it looks like. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Matt&Mike

Im not really sure if that wing has made it into production yet, at least certainly not in the US, so it won't be on any US dealer's parts system unfortunately.

Parts that are exclusive to the Type R model NSX have never been available from U.S. dealers.

Even in Japan, you must prove that you own an NSX-R before buying -R parts.

The NSX Type-R has not made production, and is currently only called a prototype by Honda. NSX-R parts are not easily accessible. May I suggest the Comptech Aggressor Wing?

The first TAITEC LTW Center-Exit exhaust was installed recently, and the owner is sending some pictures soon. Hopefully I'll be able to provide some sound clips as well.

Cheers,

I saw some NSX-R track photos that suggest that the wing is adjustable. I went looking for something similar, and Chris is right, the Comptech is a close match. The wing he has pictured doesn't resemble the ones that I've seen, I wonder if they have changed the design or if it is made by someone else. Backyard makes a carbon lip which looks interesting, but I've never seen one.

Exceptions to this (from older C30 Type R):
- R&P (4.23:1)
- shims to tighten up the LSD
- badging on door handles
