This should be a 2 pointer, but you did half of your post right so I'll knock one off.
You had the makings of a solid post to start: converted ratings, identified an itemization issue, compared to existing craftables. However, you have to remember that people other than hunters are engineers and that tailoring any one profession too far towards a specific class simultaneously requires that profession for that class and more than likely excludes it as a viable choice for other classes. If you'd stuck to your points instead of reverting to the ever popular SKY IS FALLING OH NOES type of posting we've been seeing more often around here you'd have a solid post and your posting privileges.
Also, haste scope. World's best scope, or too goddamn much haste for hunters? I think there's already issues with 2.0 steady shot bumping up against the GCD, but I would love to hear from a hunter.
Change that to "World's worst scope". Unless it affects melee of course, which seems unlikely.
The simple fact that Blizzard wants to add a Haste scope leaves me a little depressed. Haste is just about the most costly and least scaling stat for Hunter in Wrath. Yet they want us to get it. That appears to indicate that they don't really understand that situation. It is a horrible scope. And in general the scopes unveiled as actual downgrades in effect over the current scopes given that we need about 2.08 times the stats at 80. There better be even better scopes. Because these truly don't cut it. We go from 1.26% crit -> 0.87% crit and 1.90% hit -> 1.22% hit.
The glove enchant... *sigh* Haste again. Worthless more or less.
Stamina trinket appears to me a great melee trinket. Hunters are once again left standing around wondering where our version is.
The tanking goggles look to be pretty nice. The combined little things are also pretty nifty, but basing a profession on those is hardly effective.
Ammo looks nice. 10ish DPS up from MH ammo, but single stacks again? Come on now Blizzard, you can't be serious we are reverting to single stacks. Not so much a knock on Engineering than on Hunters in general.
The injectors appear to be decidedly expensive. Current injectors cost 2 knothide leather and 4 fel iron bars. These things look considerably more expensive. Not very conductive I would say.
Explosives look ok, though I must say they are a little on the weak side aside from the explosive decoy (the one thing I really like about the stuff posted).
Epic tanking gun... AGAIN??? I hope that is some sort of sick joke on their part. It is just not very friendly towards Hunters. Of course it could just be one of several guns, but we only have TBC to go by, and there we had one epic, also this one is BoP indicating it is a perk for Engies. The same goes for the Blue DPS gun. Wow, a very very marginal upgrade from my crossbow... So where are the good things?
If this is the average appearance of Engineering then I guess I ahve to find another profession, as it is clearly not very good for Hunters anymore. Which is sad as I really like my flying machine, but I can't keep a profession for a simple mount skin, that would be plain stupid on my part.
