You will have a wider turning arc at full speed no matter what engine you are using. You will have a very tight turning arc at quarter-speed, but will turn the fastest at about half speed. The Borg Engine has a bonus to turn speed - perhaps not the best, but it's nice. Also make sure you aren't using quantum slipsteam when you try to make a turn. Using slipstream reduces your turn rate dramatically.
