Top Mount Intercoolers

Is your car’s boosted performance overwhelming your stock top mount intercooler (TMIC)? We at CarMods Australia can remedy that for you with one of our state-of-the-art aftermarket top mount intercoolers.

CarMods Australia is your one-stop online shop for Australian OEM/aftermarket parts and accessories. We have been selling top and front mount intercoolers to Australian car builders and enthusiasts for years. Most stock top mount intercoolers are designed for moderate driving at stock boost levels. They quickly succumb to heat soaking when driving at the limit because of their low fin densities. As a result, they struggle to sustain high-performance levels over long periods. Aftermarket top mount intercoolers are better in this respect because they utilize bar and plate cores instead of the tube and fin cores that most OEM intercoolers feature. Bar and plate cores are less susceptible to damage from rocks and debris; they also tend to have lower leakage rates than tube and fin cores.

An aftermarket top mount intercooler is also more resilient to heat soak and more capable of handling prolonged performance and higher boost levels. Also worth noting is that this upgrade will boost performance without affecting the car’s throttle response. This is because the charged air route between the turbocharger(s) and the throttle body in a TMIC-equipped system is short.

We have both universal and vehicle-specific top mount intercooler options, all manufactured by established auto-part manufacturers with a proven track record of product quality and durability. Our vehicle-specific TMIC upgrades are designed to replace OEM/factory intercoolers directly, so you won’t need to make any modifications to accommodate them. However, you may have to make some modifications to accommodate our universal TMIC upgrades.

If you are unsure about which top mount intercooler you should purchase for your vehicle, our modding specialists can help. They understand all the ins and outs of both top mount intercoolers and all the criteria to consider when picking out such an upgrade. You can reach them at (07) 5649 8778.
