If eating the way I am will catch up with me later then I want to swap to Soylent but like I’ve said if I end up gaining weight in the process then I’ll pass. Guess I will just have to find out first hand.

There’s no difference between ramen calories, soup calories, McDonalds calories, or Soylent calories. The equation stays the same. In - out = weight change.
The advantage of soylent is that you also get a balanced amount of nutrients along with the calories. Ramen and McDonalds likely give you way too much salt, and lack other things Vitamin C. Soup is probably better, but still not complete.
It’s also easy to measure how many calories you get (with 1.5 powder). So if you want 750 calories, you can measure out 750, if you want 650 you can measure out 650. Of course, nothing stops you from cutting up a ramen or hamburger into appropriate sizes either if you so choose.
Soylent isn’t a new or special kind of food. It’s just easier food.
