yes it will fit you will need to do some wiring though

boosting an ITR isnt the best idea ... it has a high CR that makes it far harder to tune and and the cams have too much overlap for FI... twin turbo?... there really is no point

B18C1 is far more boost friendly than the ITR

Save your money and turbo a b18b (integra ls). I dont know if it is just cali but there are legal issues in putting an older engine in a newer car so depending on where you are, you might have to find a 2000 engine...$$$ (especailly if you still get a b18c5).
