Er..I'm sorry but if you're only toying with the idea can I add my voice to the "don't bother" argument? It's original equipment, it's a Joe Murray item and it's on a set of Joe Murray Project 2s (although you might not be able to tell). Why de-retro that ensemble?
That depends if you use your bike in anger. Impact headsets never lasted a winter for me unless I stripped them every few weeks (and I'd rather ride my bike)... hence why I went down the FSA lower cup route 10 years ago. I've still got the lower half of my gold Control Centre headset which I took off when I discovered how full of crap it got - and before it went terminal. I doubt my Explosif will ever be a garage queen but it's there if I want it - complete with the rubber boot that holds all the mud in
If your building a garage queen by all means stick with the impact, but if you plan to use the bike a lot I'd improve the breed - I'm sure it's what Joe Murray would have done
He's not the messiah, he's a very naughty boy.
