Thanks Bill.

Really the same engine, just slightly different LP Compressor/LP Turbine and subtle/interchangeable differences on the HP Compressor VSV System. These engines cross over to the Marine & Industrial LM1600 product line. Great flight engine, not so great Marine/Industrial unit.

I had the opportunity to dissassemble one of the prototype engines for the F404/414 product line, the YJ-101. It was dubbed a "leaky turbojet", rather than a true turbo fan. You could clearly see the lineage though, with the HP modules very close to the current engines. Come to think of it, these units are for sale if anyone is interested. Really should go to a museum, but you never know where they might end up.
