We describe a small, inexpensive four-stroke engine setup for an introductory engineering laboratory course. The setup includes instrumentation for atmospheric temperature, absolute atmospheric pressure, exhaust temperature, and exhaust differential pressure. Data collection is PC-based utilizing National Instrument’s LabVIEW software. With minor modifications and simple upgrades, the setup could be used in more advanced undergraduate engineering courses.
