Abstract
Internal combustion engine resemble an air pump, the more air that flows through it, the more the horsepower it produces. Therefore, the control of the air inlet flows investigation. To know how each flow characteristics; Air Pressure inlet, Air Temperature intake, and Theoretical Airflow rate calculation largely affect the performance of reciprocating engines. The purpose of this article published the result of an experiment. The airflow system. The experiment was conducted using FSA Bosch engine analyzer. Where air intake temperature, pressure, and theoretically calculated airflow rate is obtained. The experiment process repeated at different configuration. Air configuration measured by using additional electric air blower flow in through the intake manifold to observe and obtain any alteration in the engine performance.
