Airbus 380 Engines

I've seen 2 types of engines on the A380 which are EA and RR. I wonder if they're both equal in terms of power (thrust rating) or not.

I think the A380 looks too short and awkward. If they could make it longer, then it would look much better!

I would increase the length by about another 15-20% more to make it look more natural and proportional body-wise.
