Since you are after the best quality I would stay with the software encode. Spurs is one pass encoding and in my tests is not as good as the 2 pass VBR software encode. I use T4 with the TMPGenc Spurs plug in, FCB.

My flow is to export a HQ fine file and encode in T4. I do not apply any filters in T4 as I get the file exactly as I want in Edius so T4 is just a downconvert and encode and this is about 2.5 times realtime on my system. For Bluray I use the T4 Spurs to create an AVC file that I then author in DVD Architect ( need to change file designation to AVC). Bluray encode is about realtime or a little faster.

If you don't own FCB I would not bother.
