I.E. Should I get rid of something like... Driver Coil and add to Shield Systems or get rid of Sensors and upgrade Weapons, and so on..
Personally, I would not invest in Driver Coil.
I haven't invested any point in it, and my Tactical Escort Retrofit can travel at warp 9.97 or something like that. Of course, I can't turn with crap, but that doesn't really concern me in Sector Space. Driver Coil does not do anything for you in combat/orbiting space (except for reduce the power drain from full impulse, which could mean energy recovery after dropping out of full impulse).
With a MACO engine, I can travel at warp 12.49, and with the slipstream drive I can travel at warp 20.49.
I have an EPS Flow Regulator and points into the Electro-Plasma systems, so my power transfer rate has pretty good power recovery after dropping out of full impulse. Coupled with a MACO deflector dish, my power transfer rate is 279%.
