I think he means a boss that takes the steering wheel and yes, you WILL need a boss to fit whatever after market wheel you buy.

Yeah but it still doesnt make sense to me because he says will it fit to an XR6 boss or will he have to get a boss to fit his wheel on. What the hell is an XR6 Boss? Does he mean the standard steering shaft?

Yes the momo wheels did use a boss kit but I think the holes are offset compared to the saas and autotechnica ones. Some boss kits are multifit but not sure if that helps.

XR wheels use like a sports steering wheel boss kit. they are held on by 6 allen key bolts

as I stated earlier I believe momo used a different screw pattern to saas etc. I think the wheel will screw on but will not be straight.

Didn't airbags start coming out in the EF's not ED's?
