The engines are shipped from General Electric via a 747F in a transport cradle and Boeing fabricates the cowling in their factory. And 166.46" is around 13.8', not 14.1'. And you yourself have pointed out there is just a 1" difference in fan diameters and fan cowl diameters between the -90 and the -115B1 engines. the number I've always heard is 13'7", but even GE's own website doesn't have anything to support that number.

Not interested in a separate thread. I just think your information is wrong or 'doctored'. I would just hope JCW doesn't make the same mistakes again on the GE-90 V3 mold.
Member Charlie Alpha keep provide the wrong information about the GE-90-115 size and hijacking all threads regarding 777, I already gave all the proofs to show the mistakes he made, CA, please reply here because you are annoying all other members now.
Please read the data below, only AN-124/225/Belfast/C-5 and Supper Guppy can put the -115 inside as one single piece(RFI configuration)but NOT the B747 which has door dia. 123 X 134 inches only, GE-90-115B has dia of 168"
