A330-200 =

B757-200 =

A330-200 = PW4168A
A330-300 = PW4168A ?????

B757-200 = PW PW2037
B757-300 = PW PW2040

B747-200 = PW JT9D-(7F/7Q/7R4G2)
B747-400 = PW PW4056

DC-10-30 = GE CF6-(50C/50C2/50C2B)
DC-10-40 = PW JT9D-(20/20J)

A330-200 = Pratt & Whitney PW4168A
-300 = Pratt & Whitney PW4168A

B757-200 = Pratt & Whitney PW2037
-300 = Pratt & Whitney PW2040

B747-200 = Sorry, couldn't find this one, but I'm guessing it's the Pratt & Whitney PW4056
-400 = Pratt & Whitney PW4056

DC-10-30 = GE CF6

From the Website:

About Pratt & Whitney Engines

The PW4000 family of engines reached a major milestone in December 2000, completing 50 million hours of service on seven different types of wide body aircraft with thrust requirements from 52,000 pounds to 98,000. The PW4168, developed expressly for the A330, has secured more than half of all engine orders for that aircraft against its two competitors. The PW2000 pioneered many of the innovations that today are used on almost all commercial engines such as digital electronic engine controls. The PW2000 military model, the F117, powers the U.S. Air Force C-17 strategic air lifter.


Hope this helps! Let me know!


Edit: Next time please don't post the same thread in different forums, it saves time for those of us who actually researched the info. I learned I didn't need to find the info as ThePinnacleKid had already provided it. Thank you very much!
