The ship was smashed and needed repair so why not update systems with the latest tech available. Research and Development never ceases.
I was talking about the real world VFX. Why waste production budget on that?
Because they wanted to make some changes.

I still think it's funny how the one component on the ship that is hardly ever used is the most conspicuous component that got upgraded. I don't even think anyone making these movies knows what an impulse Engine is or even does. Last movie when the Kelvin had her warp drive knocked out, George uses the warp engines to ram the Narada even though we can still see the Kelvin's impulse engines still glowing.

Yet whenever the Enterprise jumped to warp, the glow from the impulse engine faded first.

In the Kelvin's case, as far as I know, nothing suggests warp engines cannot be used for sub-light velocities.

The plasma vent glowed brighter, all of her systems were stabilised slightly, all that seems to have happened was that George ramped the reactor up to full pouring power into everything.

We've seen this done both ways. In TMP, it's pretty clear that the warp engine is powering the ship as is accelerates from full impulse to warp one. In TWOK through STID we usually see the jump from a near standstill to warp speed. Sure, in TMP they were taking it slow with the new engines, but again the gap between full impulse and warp one is owned by warp drive.
