Sir, while some may find your rationale engaging, I find it boringly pedantic. Many manufacturers as GM produced many "versions" of their engines. EG the 350~5.7 L V8; recognizable by any nose picking 15 year old high school
boy, came in versions with different bore and stroke, 2 and 4 bolt bearings, mechanical or hydraulic lifters with 145 to 375 stock HP. They were all "versions" of the "same" 350~5.7L engine.
engines (Google it) were built the same way with numerous configurations and versions under liscense by manufacturers all around the world. Both the 108s and the 236s came in various versions up until the 90's when Catepillar swallowed up Perkins for its designs and market. While Cat dropped competing and obsolete models the 236 was modernized and rebadged as the C4.4 but is the "same" engine (but different version) as the M90, and the Perkins Sabre M92.
Continuing this interchange with nothing more than semantics separating the issue, is just a waste of bandwidth.
