Is there anyone who know what differentiates the PW4052, PW4056, PW4060, PW4062, PW4062A, PW4152, PW4156A, PW4156, PW4158, PW4460, PW4462 from each other? If they are all based on the PW4000-94, there must be some small to moderate differences in each of them to justify issuing them a separate model number, but what are those differences? I could find no literature explains the differences between the aforementioned models.

Anyone who knows what the differences are, or knows a website which explains the differences between them, please let me know.

Thanks to all who respond.

Quoting Placekicker (Thread starter):

It's entirely possible that the only difference is the thrust programming plug. Since the models are used on Airbus, MD's, and Boeing's there is probably some build-up differences between the PW40xx, PW41xx, and PW44xx, but within those families it should just be different thrust ratings.

This is fairly normal. The CFM56-7B engines are all identical except the thrust programming plug.

The second digit designates the airframe manufacturer.

0= Boeing

1= Airbus

2= Russian

4= McDonnell Douglas

The third and fourth digits are the engines thrust rating.

The reason that there is no PW4360, is because of the R-4360 used on the B-36 and B-50.

This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.
