At some point I played around with a similar scheme, but instead of multiplying all c# coefficients with -1, I tried a small positive multiplier such as 2-5, before feeding the polynomials to msieve to optimize them. At least for the multiplier of 2 I did find some polynomials that were better than the original one, though never one that ended up at the top. Perhaps this idea may be worth a try?
