Default Muzzle Breaks?

I'm looking at changing the Muzzle Break on my EV2, does it make any difference which way the vents are facing?

Forwards or Backwards?

I would imagine one way it would be a muzzle brake and the other way a muzzle accelerator as the normally backwards facing grooves are intended to put the brakes on rifle movement by using the muzzle blast to counter the recoil.

The clue is in the name.
