1. PW is 2 spool, RR is 3 spool
2. PW has fan bypass on the outside, RR on the inside of the cowling
3. PW has fan and turbine reverse, RR doesn't ( not sure if also on the -400)
4. PW fan diameter is 94 inches, RR 87 inches
5. PW engine is longer then the RR engine
6. RR uses wide chord fan technology, the PW engine not as much

These are all I can remember

Sincerely,
Dash8

One more.

7. The RR engine has a noise reducing exhaust mixer which the PW 4000 doesn't have.

the PW and RR spin different directions and yes the RR is three spool (some kind of gearing system that allows certain compressor and turbine sections to run at different speeds and supposedly is more efficient)
you guys both won
