Spoiler/Wing for FD without drilling holes

Are there any wings or really any aero available that use the stock pre-99 spoiler holes? I've been looking at the panspeed wing but I cannot even begin to bring myself to drill holes in my low mileage '92 Efini. Any other options or suggestions?

Maybe the Mazdaspeed wing? You could probably put a ton of double sided tape on that wing since it has a large contact area, but even then, I'd still secure it by drilling holes through my hatch lol. Or.. you could just purchase a second hatch just to do whatever with. I've honestly toyed with the idea of having a hatch with a GT Spoiler on it, and then a wingless hatch for street use, but it just seems like such a hassle so I've never bothered.

I think the later "whale-tail" spoiler uses the inner holes from our stock S6 spoiler. The outer holes you'll have to fill. Not sure how much real “aero” either provides though.

I have an RE-Amemiya wing that looks like the stock R1 wing but bigger. It uses the same bolt holes. I think the Racing Beat spoilers may do as well.

I just replaced a cracked Racing Beat spoiler with a stock R1 spoiler and unfortunately, the bolt holes are a little off. The inner holes had to be drilled larger and the outer front holes were off so much they had to be filled and re drilled.
Alot more effort that the drop in replacment I had thought.

I think it's called the Type-1

https://www.vividracing.com/reamemiy...02-p-6087.html

Don't know if it's really available new any more. I've seen them every now and again on Ebay.

My car is an R2 and it bolted right up to the stock spoiler holes, no weirdness, just bolted right on perfectly.

Same shape as a stock spoiler just bigger. Many people have seen it then did a double-take - "is that a stock spoiler?". I really dig it, looks good and clean just a little "extra" to it.

^Looks like that Amemiya type 1 spoiler only uses the inner holes too...with the ends over the quarter panel. So you’d have cover the outer holes or fill them.

Nope, it uses all 8 mounting holes. I've uninstalled/reinstalled it a number of times to know for sure .

I did have to re-paint my rear hatch since the old spoiler rubbed the paint away at the edges and this spoiler covers different parts of the hatch. If the paint was mint this spoiler is a simple bolt-on process.

BTW, since this is an info dump, the spoiler has an RE-Amemiya logo cast into the fiberglass on the underside middle. It also had I think 2 studs to help install it. The hardware when I got it was long gone so I used metric stainless hardware. All the bolts go into riv-nuts on the spoiler. The gaskets between the spoiler and car are different than stock so I made my own from rubber gasket material from a local gasket shop and used a little black RTV to insure they sealed around the bolt holes.

Of course now everyone has a ton of info on a probably out-of-production and hard to source spoiler. Yay internet!

The s6 spoiler is documented to reduce lift. And, some Mazda literature I've read mentions the efini spoiler is more efficient. And, the 99spec is actually a wing that produces non-marginal downforce.

No drilling necessary. Feed type 2.

Feed type 2 uses the factory two outer holes. The two inner need to be filled in.
99+ spoilers use all the factory holes.
Mazdaspeed uses the outer holes like the Feed type 2 but also covers the whole deck. No need to fill in the inner holes.
