I read somewhere that it can have more of an effect on your FTP test than your actual FTP. When you test, you are riding above and below your FTP (presumably). Having more anaerobic capacity means you can ride above your true FTP for longer, and recover from these efforts faster.

If two people have the same FTP, but one has better AC, they will do better in the test. Guess that's more a function of an imperfect test than anything.
