I must apologize that I don't have the specific information you seek but, (to my knowledge) the Hornet is one of the few fighters that does not have a forums! Information about the Hornet is less available to many of us civilians.
Aerodynamics are just as if not more important than thrust to weight ratio when it comes to how an aircraft performs. The F414 and its EPE variant have very similar numbers to the TF30 and F110 used in the Tomcat while both the engine and airframe are lighter. If it was just t/w the Super Hornet would have much better performance than it actually does.
