It's to achieve that MTOW will F414 only... With a more powerful engine MTOW would simply become higher.Looking to its MTOW, GE414 seems underpowered. I am sure that they must be looking for GE414 EPE. Simply, 58 KN dry and 98KN afterburner is not sufficient to power an aircraft of 17.5 MTOW.
The max load is based on the thrust, not the other way around.
