I think I need a new bottom bracket because the silky pedal feeling seems to
have gradually been replaced by a gritty feeling. This seems really strange
since the road bike only has 5000 miles.
I have a FSA SLK compact double crankset (model 8680) and MegaExo BB (model
BB-8000). I am thinking of replacing the MegaExo with DA Hollowtech BB
(model SM-FC 7800) but I am not sure if they are compatible for the FSA SLK
compact double.

Does anyone know if they are compatible?
Is the Shimano Cup tool compatible with the FSA cup?

The cup tool is the same.

This place sells aftermarket bb's which seems to suggest the two are
interchangable:

Raceface, FSA and Shimano are interchangable, with Truvativ you're stuck
