Searching indicates that an H22 is about 400lbs, so going w/ something like a 3VZ-FE like ya mentioned would add an extra liter but only about 70lbs, nowhere near ~100-200lbs. For that matter, 300+hp N/A is supposedly possible, so going from ~200hp/1400lbs to ~300hp/1470lbs, and whatever the turbocharged equivalent is, certainly seems worthwhile from the perspective of power to weight, not to mention the lower engine cost.
