Changing to Ultegra 6700 Crankset what BB

I have 2012 Fuji Gran Fondo 2.0 LE
Comes factory with an FSA crankset
I am slowly changing out all FSA and Oval items to Ultegra to match out the bike with the shifters and derailers
Brakes have been changed to Ultegra

Just got a used 6700 Ultegra crankset

What BB do I need to get now?
The factory one with the FSA is a press fit one
New to this stuff so if anyone can point me in the right direction...much thanks and appreciation

My frame (2015 Orbea Orca) takes the same bottom bracket as the Fuji GF 2.0, BB86. I went with a Wheels Manufacturing bottom bracket. You have the option of the "regular" or "thread in". Wheels Manufacturing BB86/92 Bottom Brackets

My frame used the press fit BB86
Hopefully my research is correct and the BB that I bought works
Still waiting on it to arrive
Then the shop can swap over to the Ultegra crank
Came from compact gearing to standard so not sure how that will affect me
