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 for your Mazdaspeed 3.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 3.25More 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.

Speed3 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

  • *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.

    how to install a Mazdaspeed 3 TMIC

    This TMIC is amazing, a lot better than the stock one that came stock on my 2013 speed3. I recommend this product to anyone looking to upgrade their mazda. Thanks Corksport! I look forward to doing business with you guys in the future.
    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!!!!
    Top Mount Intercooler bolts to the car like instructed but as far as ease of reusing the factory cover (which is the only reason why I wanted this TMIC) is not going to be done without a fight. I understand that the backside of the cover will have to be ground down to be reused and that is not the issue. The issue is that there is a huge gap at the front of the cover where it attaches with the mounting bolts between the cover in the intercooler so now I am going to have to completely change bolts there and use a 1/4" to 3/8" spacer between to attach the cover properly and then at the back of the cover where the alignment (triangle) part of the cover is interfering with the corksport strut tower brace.
    How does the shroud make "maximum performance gains"? Can anyone explain this?

    This is my daily driver, I was wondering if you would recommend going front mount intercooler or would the top mount be enough for a daily driver for some weekend fun?

    Two questions actually; 1. How much does the piece weigh vs stock? 2. An earlier question asked about CARB certification for this part -- I am in California and I am interested to find out if this would cause my car to the visibility aspect of the test (where the person conducting the test visually inspects the engine to see if modifications have been made.)

    I installed this the other day and wow, what a difference I'm seeing. My only concern is I'm getting a high pitched hum (not whistle, more like letting the air out of a balloon and pinching the end but not quite as high pitched as that) coming into the cockpit at high loads from somewhere in or under the dash (hard to pinpoint). Could it be from not running the stock shroud? I'm pretty sure I got all my hoses tightened enough, but before I start troubleshooting I was wondering if anyone else has had this happen? Thanks

    Will this work with an '06 speed6? The TMIC piping changed between '06 and '07, and this TMIC doesn't look like it has the fittings that will work on an '06.

    I just installed Stage II SRI and the Dual VTA Bypass Valve )OMG, love it!). I want to install this TMIC next before getting an AP. I see you recommend the fuel pump internals prior to installing the TMIC to someone running stock. Should I consider getting the fuel pump internals first? My plan is to do, TMIC then AP, then Cat-Back exhaust. Suggestions?
