    PICTURES OF THE GE90 BUILDUP PRIOR TO INSTALLATION
    TO THRUST 115,300 LB
    BYPASS RATIO 9:1
    WEIGHT 19,316 LB (8780 KG)
    FAN CASE DIAMETER 158.7 IN (4.03 M)
    FAN DIAMETER 128.O IN (3.52 M)
    LENGTH 285.8 IN (7.26 M)

    Just reading the above specs its understandable why the engine is shipped split from the core and the fan case. Wondering why still? The fan case diameter is 4.03M. Now consider the fuselage diameter of a 757-200 which is 3.7M!! In other words the 757-200 fuselage could fit inside the fan case of the GE90!!!!!!!!!! Further to that the GE90 TO THRUST is 115,300LB & the PW engine on the 757-200 is 36,300LB.
