IC Engine Exhaust Port Flow

I am in the process of performing port flow analysis and have successfully run inlet flow analysis however I am having issues with running an exhaust port analysis due to the ICE being seemingly set up for inlet only. I wish to completely block the inlet port and do an exhaust flow with the cylinder itself being the inlet to the port and the exhaust header flange being the outlet. Even when I set the inlet/outlet like this the software still treats the cylinder body as part of the outlet plenum and thus fails. Is there a simple way to run the exhaust port analysis or is it a case of dismantling the ICE port flow setup to suit this reversed flow situation?
