Didn't that throw the program off for a couple of years when they decided to switch engines from the Williams FX-22, because the PWC engine was actually heavier than the Williams engine (hard as that is to believe...)?

Thanks to cdekoe's response and link; I see that the Eclipse engine PW610F is listed at 270 lbs and rated with 900 lbs of thrust, better than a 3 to 1 ratio. What is the ratio of the B777 engines (weight to thrust) and the proposed B787?
