Although... -Hull on a blue item with three bonuses to Turnrate would reinforce the fact that this is using a ship in an unintended way, kinda hotwiring a cruiser to be more like an escort.

As far as engine power, the build I have for my Galaxy-X is based around the idea of hotwiring a cruiser to be more Escort-like and the result is weapons and engines pretty close to full power with shields and aux at minimum since turnrate is tied to engine power now. I think it actually provides some balance and makes some sense to pick the special engines for this based around the assumption that people will be running the engines at a high power level.
