That's a much better application for those extra sinks.

I know that you probably wanted to make things symetrical and follow the Thug's classical weapons load, but since you've changed things around anyway by adding Stealth Armor and Angel ECM, couldn't you have changed things just a little bit further and put the ammo bins on one torso location so you'd only need to install CASE II on one side?  This leaves you with an extra ton for say, a Small Laser on each arm to cover the PPC's minimum range shortfall.  Or maybe even a C3 Slave, so you can hang around from long range where stealth armor is at its most effective, while also using targeting data from a unit that's much closer to the action.
