They are basically an AU engine in an EL. They have heaps of differences that can't be seen from the outside.

The main thing they did is change the "Conrod length to stroke length Ratio"
In other words, they made the conrods longer, roughly 0.220" odd, and made the pistons more squat, shorter, and changed the pin to deck heights. Heres some pics.

Yes they are better, but you don't want one.

The rev easier, and are smoother (like an AU). But because they are a mix up of AU and EL parts, getting more performance out of them is difficult. Hybrids have been explained in detail already in this thread and numerous others on FM.
