Regards with TIA,

I've not seen such info in one place, but the differences are something like Mercedes cars used to be - pretty much the same from year to year, with incremental improvements. That, and the "power" which goes from models that need only a couple HP to a hundred or more, with CFM (volume) and pressure up to 1000PSI.
