We use a 4ħΩ shell-model calculation with a two-body effective interaction derived microscopically from the Reid93 potential to calculate the isospin-mixing correction for the [Formula Presented] superallowed Fermi transition. The effective interaction takes into account the Coulomb potential as well as the charge dependence of [Formula Presented] partial waves. Our results suggest the isospin-mixing correction [Formula Presented] which is compatible with previous calculations. The correction obtained in those calculations, performed in a 0ħΩ space, was dominated by deviation from unity of the radial overlap between the converted proton and the corresponding neutron. In the present calculation this effect is accommodated by the large model space. The obtained [Formula Presented] correction is about a factor of 4 too small to obtain unitarity of the Cabibbo-Kobayashi-Maskawa matrix with the present experimental data.
