no, it is not absolutely necessary, but if you want your engine to live for a while i suggest you use one. you don't have to vent it out of the valve cover, you could use the go-autoworks black box AN adapter, it doesn't cost much. and if you cant afford a catch can, you should just sell your setup now because you will spend lots more before it is truly "ready to go". not saying that you can't afford one, just a lot of people say things like that but they want to go turbo. get one, it will be good insurance for you.

With a new wideband I decided to tune out the low load richness and got it ballparked, and...
