How is the coordinateSystem supposed to be used in rhoPorous...? I am starting to work with porous media to simulate a car's air intake and I do not quite understand the parameters used in the file ..case/constant/porousZones.

The coordinate system is used to define local coordinate system in the cell zone for your porous resistance parameters. It can be seen in the angledDuct example.

A detailed description of how to do simulations with porous media in OpenFOAM, and a modification to cylindrical coordinates.
