PZL-10W is a version of the PZL-10S right, but instead of the turbine driving the propshaft it drives the rotorshaft: so the compressor and combustion parts etc. are probably pretty similar to PZL-10S, so if you can disregard the propshaft then here's a cutaway. at least it's something:

Engine Rating (2 x PZL 10W)
Take off power (5 min) 2x662 kW (2x888 shp)
Maximum continuous power 2 x574 kW (2x770 shp)
O.E.I. max contingency power (2.5 min) 846 kW (1134 shp)
O.E.I. max contingency power (30 min) 736 kW (987 shp)

You're right, not much media, couple of pics into the engine bay, that's it. I reckon, you've already found this similar topic:
