well, making a thread on the forum certainly won't magically fix the problem.
normally one would try to locate the source of the leak whenever they have a leak...

if you don't know where you should start, try to search for "leak" and go from there.
there are 3 common possible leak with the integra.
- sunroof and trunk (related to drain tube)
- window frame (damaged weather strips)
- a-pillar/firewall (due to rust)

so, try to locate your source and go from there.
go from area that is most wet.

when my tail light gaskets were leaking, the water from there made it all the way to my back seats, saturating them with water (they're basically sponges). Try removing your rear interior panel and see if water is leaking in through your tails. I don't know about the driver floor, but a common passenger floor leak is due to the front windshield cowl seal failing.

Tail lights, moonroof drain tubes... these are big points of entry for lots of water.

In the mean time do you have a garage and a dehumidifier to start drying it out? May want to buy a bunch of arm and hammer fridge baking soda boxes to help soak up the moister. Just keep one in the car after it's dried as much as you can.

take your front seats out, take out the center console, take out back seats, remove spare and rear cargo cover. Get a shopvac, spend a couple hours getting it as dry as possible. Then get 2 or three fans, hook them up and let them go for the rest of the day.

Check on the car periodically to see if its working. Personally when this happened to me, I put two small fans under the carpet after I had gotten most of the water up.

DO NOT THINK THAT THERE IS NO WATER UNDER THE CARPET!!!! check first, cause chances are the carpet got so saturated that there are puddles underneath.

thanks for all the help guys. for now i will try to vacuum/soak it all up. i just make some "custom" taillights, and when i pulled out the stockers they weren't sealed properly at both the seam of the two plastics and the foam gasket(there was water everywhere) on the passenger side. so hopefully this was the source and the oNLY one and it will stop. we shall see.
