Yes, but that's why much of the discussion is around how "new" the technology really is.

It has been mentioned there are significant differences in the engines between the current US and the European engines, well beyond exhaust emissions treatment, but a cursory check of a couple of the significant changes mentioned showed identical part numbers for the European engine and the US engine.
