The CorkSport Top Mount Intercooler (TMIC) provides solid power gains and a great value to the Mazdaspeed 3, MS6 and CX7 turbo. Made from CorkSport’s own custom cast end tanks which are TIG welded to a 3.0” thick bar and plate core, the TMIC provides added performance by removing the bottleneck restriction of the stock intercooler and increasing resistance to heat soak by using thicker materials. The cold pipe connection is CNC milled and drilled for a leak proof connection and all bolt holes have been capped off.

The CorkSport Advantage

16 Rows of Cooling Fins help drastically lower post turbo air temperatures.

Better Cooling:16 Rows of Cooling Fins help drastically lower post turbo air temperatures. Proven on a SuperFlow test bench to provide 46% more airflow over the stock intercooler.

With 3.25

More Capacity: With 3.0" of thickness, the extra capacity allows significant cooling capabilities. During testing, the Mazdaspeed 3 TMIC showed an average decrease in pressure across the core by 53% and an increase in overall efficiency of 25% over the stock intercooler.

CorkSport TMIC increases flow

Cast Aluminum: End tanks made of cast aluminum are durable and long lasting. Plus with a bar and plate intercooler core, you remove bottlenecking for more power with less boost.

The CorkSport Advantage

  • Optional Aluminum Shroud For maximum performance and airflow, or maintain your factory engine shroud to keep a stealth look.
  • Reduces pre-detonation (knock) of the fuel air charge
  • Increased resistance to heat soak thanks to larger capacity and better airflow
  • Fits the 2007-2009 Mazdaspeed 3, 2006-2007 Mazdaspeed 6, 2010+ Mazdaspeed 3, and Cx7
  • Choose from custom finishing options Rolled Finish for a Gloss look, or Sand Blasted for a Rough Matte finish.
  • Corksport Service and Support Receive full color installation instructions, all of the needed installation hardware, and knowledgeable telephone installation support

    *Please note due to the design of the factory hood scoop on the 2010+ Mazdaspeed 3 the hood scoop seal will rest on the rear intercooler end tank with the optional aluminum shroud.

    **Stock shroud molding may cause some fins to bend slightly. This will NOT affect performance or efficiency of your TMIC. The easiest and recommended way of removing the offending culprit is to trim the TMIC shroud. See Shroud Fitment Document for more details.

    I just installed this and their BPV valve. I love them, call me crazy but my shifts got smoother, the increase in power is pretty sweet too. Thank you corksport!!!
    Perfect fit, fast install, exceptional quality!

    This is the perfect TMIC if you ever plan on going with meth injection or ethanol, it's going to give you the best throttle response from any aftermarket TMIC, and it'll still fit the factory (genPu at least) shroud and only the hardcore MS3 owners might think it's not stock.

    Before my AP, I noticed that my powerband gained an extra 800-1k rpm worth of top end power, meaning I didn't need to shift at 5500 rpm to keep it in the sweet spot.

    Even without meth or eth this is perfect for a heavily bolted car while keeping top notch throttle response.

    I would personally only torque the cold pipe bolts to 12 ft/lbs, as 15 is a lil too much in aluminum with steel bolts.
    Easy install. With a cold air and aftermarket BOV noticed a big difference immediately and had a very smooth crisp spooling sound. obviously a better quality product than stock. Ready now for Accessport, turboback, HPFP, and possibly to big turbo!? Buy this product if you do not want to deal with custom pipe work and will not be ramming your car so much that heat soak will be an issue!
    Easy install. Went ahead and reset battery to relearn A/F. Instant difference. Top end of second into third has ALOT more torque. Matched with my Cobb BPV, shifts produce a sharp and crisp recirc. There is no comparison between the stock unit and the Corksport unit. Night/day difference in quality and craftsmanship.
    Fits like a glove and 30 minute install at most. Consistently hitting boost targets and spool up is much smoother. Vehicle has much more power in higher RPMs. Not to mention stock shroud fitment is a plus. High recommend this TMIC!
    Great Product, Great finish. CorkSport has top of the line product for the right price. I installed this along with my charge tubes, HPFP, DP and CBE all in one night. Its making a big difference than the stock unit which is trash. This is a very quick fix took about 10 minutes to install. Currently being tuned by Will Dawson from Purple Drank Tuning and he loves my set up. You guys need a tune hit him up.
    Very impressed with this upgrade turbo spools a heap better over standard TMIC. This unit is a highly recommended 1st upgrade for your Mazda 3 MPS or Mazdaspeed 3. UNREAL!!!!
    Perfect fit and looks great! Turbo spools much faster and power is consistent. BATs dropped much lower than the stock TMIC and all this while maintaining a stealth look! Thanks for another great product!
    By far the most intriguing upgrade from Corksports. Simply stunning how well this one part makes your MS3 perform more efficient with the power delivery. The turbo spools way faster and boost continues into the higher RPM ranges much better now while putting down a bit more HP/TQ too. Running an AP safe tune now until I install the CS FP internals and currently have the Stage II Intake/TIP and MZR bypass valve installed. Still safe with FP readings! Beginning to get pretty fast now...

    Ohh and thanks for the postcard CS! The wait wasn't bad with the IC so no worries! Hit me up if you guys ever swing through SC for god know what reason...streets are getting packed with more crazy shit every day!
    I Had these awesome TMIC since april 2013! first of, the best finish ever ! and compare to our stock TMIC, this piece is a beast !! definitely worth every penny !
