    yes....get the manifold and your good to go. Why do you want to boost a high compression motor? Wouldnt suggest turnin the boost up high

    well I wouldnt turn up the boost too high on a b16...they already come with high compression so i wouldnt risk blowin it up. As far as what else you'll need....manifold, FMIC, oil lines, intercooler piping, BOV, wastegate, and i suggest buying a boost gauge and boost controller.

    Well if you want it to last long I'd just put it on bout 8-9lbs and call it a day.....as for BOV, wastegate, and FMIC...just depends on how much you want to spend. You dont dont a massive intercooler. I have a Tial BOV and wastegate but thats just me....you could probably pick up a TurboXS RFL bov for under $200. They sound good and do the job...

    Honestly, the stock B16 isn't really all that high on compression. Quite a few have been boosted with no problems. It's all in the tuning.
