CAMPRO engine is a basic Double Overhead Camshaft (DOHC) which has a capacity of 1597 cc and installed with a total of 16 valves developed by Malaysian car manufacturer PROTON. The name CAMPRO is derived from its key design feature of the CAM PROFILE. Despite the low fuel consumption and good torque distribution, the engine still requires a lot of improvement to be made. That is why the CPS (Cam Profile Switching) is incorporated in the newer model of the CAMPRO as a solution to the previous CAMPRO problems. Improvement also can be done on the engine fuel consumption. The objective of this paper is to find the effect of swirl on the engine and compare it to the normal turbulence mixing process. The swirl effect analysis is done by using the GT-SUITE which has a standard swirl flow embedded in the software. The effect is simulated on the GT-SUITE and it is found that the swirl affects the engine in reducing the fuel consumption and increasing the volumetric efficiency.
