The CorkSport Advantage
High Flow/High Efficiency Intercoolers
Small Core: This core may be small, but its mighty. Featuring 10mm runners that provide ample thermal efficiency while only inducing a 0.6psi pressure drop at 15psi on the OEM turbocharger. Measuring in at 23.5" Long x 6" Tall x 3.5" Thick
Big Core: Only available with the CorkSport crashbar, the big core is big and even more mighty. Featuring 10mm runners, the CorkSport big core has been proven on a 550whp car (credit to Sean Strout). Measuring in at 23.5" Long x 11" Tall x 3" Thick.
Performance Piping Design
The CorkSport FMIC Kit features a new variable diameter piping that reduces boost lag and improves throttle response.
Hot Side Pipe: The hot side pipe utilizes 2.25" diameter piping to get the hot boosted air to the intercooler fast to reduce boost lag.
Cold Side Pipe: The cold side pipe utilizes 2.5" diameter pipe in the first half and 3" diameter pipe in the last half to increase the volume of cold charge air directly in front of the throttle body. This reduces boost lag and improves throttle response.
Engine Mounted Piping
All the piping's mounting locations are located on the engine, allowing the piping to move with the engine reducing the chance for wear and tear.
Reinforced Silicone Couplers
9-layer (4-layers braided & 5-layers silicone) available in red, black, or blue.
Reinforced Silicone Coolant Hose
The cold piping routing interferes with the OEM coolant hose so we provide you with a new coolant hose that fits and functions great! Only available in black.
Direct Fit Crashbar
Included with the big core kit, the crashbar utilizes the OEM mounting locations on the chassis and the radiator core support while still providing the OEM tow point hook-up location.

How To Install Your CorkSport Front Mount Intercooler
It will take you 4-6 hours to install the CorkSport Front Mount Intercooler with our easy-to-use instructions.
4-6 Hour Install Time
Once I got the FMIC in it preformed great. The problem was getting it installed. First, half of the clamps that are provided with the intercooler did not fit no matter what I did. I ended up going to the auto parts store to buy standard hose clamps. Second, The bypass valve which they don't mention in the instructions on mounting it to the hot pipe which is not threaded. You will need 2 bolts and nuts to mount this. Last, there is no provided bolt for relocating the evap solenoid and bracket, hope your like me and saved all of the nuts and bolts from your previous Corksport installs. If your a do it your selfer and this is a weekend project, good luck contacting someone for help with your install as Corksport is not open on weekends. Needles to say, it took a lot longer than the 5 - 6 hour estimate.
