Mazdaspeed 3 TMIC

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” 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.

CorkSport’s innovative design allows for the reuse of the Mazda OEM plastic shroud giving purchasers the option of maintaining the stock look and feel to the engine bay. An optional aluminum shroud is available for maximum performance gains and can be customized to compliment the finish of your engine bay.

The Mazdaspeed 3 TMIC has been vigorously tested to ensure optimal characteristics. Testing completed on a SuperFlow test bench proved a 46% increase in airflow over the Mazda OEM intercooler. During the 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.

The CorkSport Advantage:

  • Proven to provide 46% more airflow over the stock intercooler
  • Cast aluminum end tanks provide superior airflow over competitors folded tanks
  • Optional Aluminum Shroud For maximum performance and airflow
  • Maintain your factory engine cover and keep the stock stealth and look of your engine bay
  • Reduces pre-detonation (knock) of the fuel air charge
  • Increased resistance to heat soak
  • Bar and plate intercooler core removes bottlenecking for more power with less boost
  • Fits the 2007-2009 Mazdaspeed 3, 2006-2007 Mazdaspeed 6, 2010+ Mazdaspeed 3, and Cx7
  • Choose from multiple custom finishing options to compliment your style
  • 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. If you come across this issue, first of all, 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.

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 !
Got this for a great price on a holiday sale, and it's definitely a worthy investment. I'm consistently hitting boost targets even at higher ambient temperatures, and the core is shedding heat at highway speeds much faster than I anticipated for a heavy bar and plate design.
this tmic looks amazing with the optional powder coated shroud. the power you get from replacing the stock restricting tmic is ridiculous and very noticeable. amazing product and im super happy. thanks again corksport
Love this product looks great and comparing OEM to this intercooler you can tell the difference the craftsmanship is excellent. I had done a bunch of other upgrades at the time so install was simple and easy. I haven't even put the stock cover on it cause I love the fact you can look inside the scoop form the front of the car and see a big burly intercooler. 2 thumbs up corksport
This was the first power mod I have made to my car. I installed this on my 12' Mazdaspeed 3 the other day and I love it! The turbo spools much more quickly and power delivery seems to be much smoother as well. I was peaking +15psi just in 2nd gear alone which I was never able to do on the stock intercooler. There were a couple of hiccups with the installation. In the instructions, it says to remove the connections to the bpv, but this proved to be quite difficult as the return line clamp is very difficult to get to. I found it much easier to remove the two bolts holding the bpv on the cold pipe, so you could lift the stock intercooler and cold pipe out together. I also removed the bpv gasket so it didn't accidentally fall out. Also, the two m6-1.0 allen head bolts provided did not work as they pulled through the stock shroud holes when tightening since the distance between the stock shroud and the new intercooler threads have increased and there were no washers provided. I could have just bought two washers, but I wanted to stick with a 10mm bolt, but the stock ones were too short. I ended up spending $6 and picked up two m6 - 1.0 X 30mm bolts and m6 washers and they fit perfectly and were long enough to reach the threading and short enough not to bottom out. Other than that, the new intercooler is a great product and I highly recommend!
First of all install was a BREEZE, 30 minutes MAX.
difference in performance as soon as you hit the GAS... And you still have that STOCK look under the hood,OEM shroud fit like a glove. My best friend has a MS6 if I didn"t tell him I upgraded he would of never known. Gotta LOVE Cork Sport.
Just finished installing the stage II SRI with the TMI on 2013 Mazdaspeed3. Love it. Did a quick test run and wheels starting breaking loose between 1st and 2nd even with the traction control on. Was at 80 before knowing it. Lots of fun! Very simple to install the TMI. SRI, a little tricky although completely worth it.
