Depends on exactly what bias ratio you're looking for. Optimal is purely subjective and is also influenced by many things - type of driving (AX, DE, rally, Street), suspension, tires, LSD - to say nothing of personal preference.

993TT front with 965 4-pot (C2 turbo) rears would give a bias comparable to 930 stock (1.6:1), whereas 993 RS would be slightly more rear-biased. TT rears have tiny pistons and would be very front-biased (around 2:1). Not such a big deal if you have ABS - which 930's don't.

I don't really see any practical need to upgrade 930 brakes unless it's for high-speed track use. In which case, you might as well ditch the booster and go to manual brakes (more feel, better modulation, higher pedal pressure) and a dual master-cylinder setup with an adjustable bias balance bar. By selecting the M/C for the rear circuit individually, you can dial in precisely the bias you want (and adjust it dynamically with the bar if desired).
