UPS announced the Pratt & Whitney 4158 engine for its order of Airbus a-300 regional freighters. I'm surprised it seemed UPS was going for all Rolls Royce engines for the fleet until now the first few 75's had Pratts but then went to the RR RB211. Is this engine really that good?

I dont think there are any A300 powered with Rolls Royce engines, and thats why I think they ordered the P&W.

I'm still shocked that UPS went with Airbuses instead of keeping an all 767-757 fleet.
