You need to add these to 'engineGeometry'.

swirlAxis ( 0 0 1 );

swirlCenter ( 0 0 0 );

swirlRPMRatio swirlRPMRatio [0 0 0 0 0 0 0] 1.0;

swirlProfile swirlProfile [0 0 0 0 0 0 0] 3.11;

they should be pretty self-explanatory, except for swirlProfile, and if you have a look at the file in the engineSwirl-dir you can read all about it.
