Default D15Y7 to y8 and turbo? suggestions and concerns

I ordered a greddy turbo kit and im wondering i have a y8 head sitting around, it needs to be built...?

how do i build that head, can i just put it together or does everything has to be done a certain way with the torque specs etc?

another question is do i need a vtec solenoid doing this?

is it good to turbo a mini me swap, i heard its better b/c of the compression some people are telling me. I wanted to ask you guys since you probably know more!

oh yeah and another thing my turbo is second hand doesnt come with gaskets and fuel injectors what can i do about that?

thanks in advance!

hmm im not sure what sleathmode is... i looked it up on google nothing really came up.

whats this resistor box your talking about?

where did you get your blue top fuel injectors, i heard 1990 eagle talon fuel injectors fit the d15 motor, is that true? and is it worth getting them there rated to 450cc

well you can get the blue tops from the 90-94 talons and eclipse's. or the black tops from the newer ones. but it has to be from the turbo'd model. the non turbo model are 380's rhey look like this. i have the greddy kit except i have a different charge pipe, FMIC, BOV and no e-manage. i have a chipped ECU with Crome Pro
