boot spoiler stress

I have a boot spoiler to fit. the company advise a carbon boot from ams
are all carbon boot lids as strong or is it possible to strengthen the oem boot lid.
any recommendations.

Not sure you'd need to strengthen the Standard boot lid, don't just change it for the sake of changing it... unless you are going to do 4million miles an hour!

most "carbon" bootlids can warp from downforce. this is due to the way most of them are constructed.

ams has an additional layer of kevlar to make it stiffer. this is especially good for adding wings for adding more downforce if needed.

I have aftermarket spoiler on the standard boot lid
I have had no problems
But the original bolt holes will need to be welded closed as filler will just pop out

Metal boot should be able to take alot of stress, just the aftermarket carbon ones.. Like the front splitters that get ripped off at 100mph+
Nissan sell a Carbon bootlid for their MY17 TrackPacks, so if made correctly they can easily take the stresses.
