Cobb Tuning Gen2 Front Mount Intercooler - Mazdaspeed3 10-13
COBB Tuning is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the
COBB Front Mount Intercooler (FMIC) for the 2010-2012 MAZDASPEED3. Based
on feedback received from MAZDASPEED3 enthusiasts, the development of
this Gen2 MAZDASPEED3 FMIC focused on three specific areas;
high-efficiency, outstanding build quality and excellent fitment. The
final product is a tidy package that fits symmetrically in the front
radiator opening, retains the stock crash-structure and has a thermal
efficiency of over 80% through most of the rev-range with a maximum
pressure-drop of less than 0.75psi of pressure drop at 21psi of boost.
This performance is achieved through attention to detail in selecting
components for this kit backed by extensive testing. The 24Óx6.5Óx3.5Ó
aluminum core with cast-aluminum end-tanks is extremely efficient while
creating as little restriction as possible. 2.5Ó mandrel-bent aluminum
tubing carries pressurized air to and from the intercooler and feature
formed ends to eliminate hose blow-off. Five-ply silicone couplers and
stainless steel t-bolt clamps are used throughout to further ensure
reliable, leak-free joins.
The fitment of the COBB Gen2 MS3 FMIC kit was just as rigorous as
ensuring its high performance. This kit fits with the stock crash-bar in
place, retaining factory passenger safety. The kit bolts into place
with no cutting of the front bumper cover and only simple and
straightforward trimming of the front undertray is required. Custom
brackets allow perfect fitment in the tight confines behind the front
The appearance of the COBB Gen2 MS3 FMIC is second to none, once again
due to attention to detail. The intercooler core is visually striking,
positioned dead-center in the bumper-cover opening, with polished cast
end-tanks and laser-etched COBB logos. The intercooler piping is
powdercoated in a dark gray and includes integrated brackets with the
COBB ÒCÓ logo. The five-ply silicone couplers also bear the COBB logo
and are available in blue or black to best match your existing engine
The COBB Gen2 MS3 FMIC is supported with Accessport Off-The-Shelf maps
for intercoolers and a variety of other power-producing modifications.
Simply install the COBB Gen2 MS3 FMIC kit, select an appropriate map
from the extensive Mazda Accessport Off-The-Shelf Map Database, flash
the ECU and go experience heat-soak-free power. Over and over and over!
The COBB Gen2 MAZDASPEED3 FMIC is the ultimate combination of
performance, quality and attention to detail.
