Basically, the -30 has GE engines and the -40 has Pratt & Whitney.

The story was that the -40 was created to sell the aircraft to a die-hard
P&W customer (JAL?) who wanted to take advantage of the political benefits
of existing work-share programs (specifically, I think P&W has had a
relationship with Japan Aero Engines for a while before the IAE partnership
was formed).
