Video: Mustang Anderson Power Pipe Install - AFM 3.5" Fox Body Intake
Published on 2014-05-06
For Project Blue Collar, our latest Fox Body Mustang Project, we decided to install an AFM Power Pipe to help support the other engine performance mods. Follow along in this video as we show you how to install an Anderson Power Pipe.
Anderson Ford Motorsports manufactures some of the best performance cold air intakes for Fox Body Mustangs! They feature massive mandrel bent tubing that is designed to fit large aftermarket mass air meter. They come with a huge high flow air filter to help your performance 5.0L push rod engine breathe easy.
The air filter is relocated to the inside of the fender to help pull cooler air into the engine. The increase air flow and cool air temps equal big horsepower gains.
Each Anderson (AFM) power pipe includes all the needed hardware, tubing and filter. These are perfect for stroker engines and Fox Body Mustangs with larger profile camshafts!

If you're planning on making big power with your small-block equipped '86 to '93 Mustang, then you probably need to make sure that you can get enough air into it. And you can do that with the AFM 3 and 1/2 inch Power Pipe.
The tube itself is constructed of mandrel bent steel and it's ceramic-coated inside and out not only for great looks, but for great heat dissipation qualities as well.
The air filter is massive and is located low in the fender opening. That way, it gets the coolest air charge possible. The kit includes all the needed couplers and clamps, even instructions on how to put it onto your car. Installation really is very simple.
It can be done in your garage or driveway with common hand tools and just requires that you remove your existing air inlet system. Be it a cold air kit or your factory air box.
First thing we notice was this tube was going to be a tight fit. So we used a little WD-40 and with that little bit of lube, she slipped into place. However, whenever rounding the bend, we noticed that the alternator was a little bit in the way. We probably could have gotten the tube in without, but we found removing the alternator allowed us plenty of room to get the tube into place hassle-free.
Once the tube is slid in, go ahead and put your alternator back on and finish the assembly according to the instructions. Pop on your filter, plug in your mass air and final tighten all the clamps. And you're on your way to making more power.
