As the topic says I was wondering if taking a barrel off to have it threaded then reinstalling the same barrel will affect headspace?

No, not in the least.

No, since headspace is set by the barrel and the bolt. The upper just guides the bolt carrier back for cycling.

Thanks for the input. I was about 98% sure it wouldn't be an issue but I learned a long time ago its better safe than sorry :)

headspace is set at the factory with the barrel extension. you have nothing to worry about.
