Plus one can always put the engines "on shifts" allowing one pair to 'rest', and thereby doubling the operational life of the pods. Very room ship it be.
There is a reference to this somewhere that when the warp drive is engaged so are all four engines, but the pairs alternate every so often taking over the majority of the propulsion, going back and forwards between them to extend engine life.
