AFM POWER PIPES® were developed because of the need for a supercharger intake pipe that would flow at a higher rate of CFM, with a larger volume of air, brought on by the demand that Vortech, Procharger and Paxton superchargers have when making 10 lb of boost or more.
The AFM POWER PIPE®, with its all mandrel bent construction, is the highest flowing inlet pipe available for centrifugal superchargers. They also put the mass air in the inner fenderwell for a cooler intake charge. Simply put, more air gets to the supercharger, so the supercharger develops more boost without spinning faster.
Performance improvements with this innovative design have been fantastic! Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords tested in their November '97 issue on two different cars. The first (minor modifications) went from 10 lb of boost to 14 lb of boost and dropped 2 tenths and gained 4 mph at the strip. The second (major modifications) went from 16 lb of boost to 19 lb of boost, gained 38 hp at the rear wheels, and dropped 23 hundredths and gained 1.5 mph at the strip.
Requires minor modification to the inner fender well.
