It's a bootloader...there is no performance increase by installing a different bootloader, just more development functions in the engineering ones. If you aren't developing, then there is no need to flash bootloaders. Radios can give you performance increases, but they can also break your communications if you choose the wrong ones. If you are S-OFF on GB Hboot and GB Radio, you should stay that way. No good will come of mixing HBoot and radio versions. Quite frankly, if you need to ask the difference, you should stick with what you have, because you obviously do not have the need for the additional features in the modified engineering HBoot.
As for ICS, some people have issues with heat and battery life with the ICS Radios. So to avoid being one of those people, just flash an ICS ROM with the Old Firmware Fix. Run ICS Rom on GB firmware.
