So let me get this straight, you want Engineer, the self-tank class in the game, to do as much damage as Tactical, i.e the dps class in the game.

Ok so lets give engis, APA and Tactical Fleet and GDF, oh wait now they have the same damage but engis have better self tanking so lets get rid of Miracle worker, Rotate shield frequency and Eps power transfer, oh wait, now they are practically the same class.

What you shouldn't be asking for is the engi to do more dps, what you should be asking is for cryptic to improve/add engineers current abilities to perform its role in a team, i.e tanking/support.

Your Ramming Speed III deals 52098 (99235) Kinetic Damage(Critical) to Remus.
