Martin, I owned an AW11, and have driven several SW20's... as someone else pointed out the 4AGE is one of my favorite engines ever. The main thing I don't like about the SW20 is the weight, a t-top turbo car is pushing 3000lbs. Even the AW11 was heavy for it's size, though in typical Toyota fashion they're pretty stout. I got punted across 4 lanes in mine by a 5 series BMW (hit and spun me twice when he tried to pass on the shoulder and lost control... then freaked and kept his foot on the floor). Drove the car for another year until it got stolen, just replaced the drivers door, tweaked the rear fender lip a bit and had it aligned.
