Trunk lid spring for OEM rear spoiler

Hey guys, I bought my baby used with an OEM rear spoiler already installed. I am under the assumption (from reading many, many threads on s2000.com and S2KI) that a new, stronger spring is to be installed when the spoiler is installed. This is presumably to offset the new weight on the trunk lid.

Question: what the proper trunk operation with the spoiler and correct spring installed? That is, if I hold my trunk release button on the key fob, should the trunk open fully or just be "popped" and require me to open it the rest of the way? I suspect it's the latter—and how my trunk currently behaves—but I've... got too much time on my hands or something.

Yours is operating normally.

Thanks, kg.
