just cop an old teg. I don't think you are going to find a decent RSX for 5.5K but who knows.

You can cop a pretty nice teg or newer civic for 5k.. if you're into Euro try looking at GTIs too

You don't want a 3000gt, and you don't want an rsx that cost 5.5k. 5.5k can get you a clean teg or 240sx. Only issue I could foresee is if you get one that's highly modified. That's something I wouldn't do unless I trusted the person.

i found an rsx going for 6.1k on craigslist. i figured i could get it for 5.5k. why do you say 5.5k would be bad for an rsx?
the rsx did have high mileage though (195k) and an accident to the rear. gonna take a look at it tonight. anything i should look out for or beware of?

an insanely high mileage and previous accident involvement are thigns you should beware of...

insurance is expensive for a integra

you can find a clean zenki s14 for $3-3.5k or a s14 kouki for $5k

or a sr20 swapped zenki s14 or s13

IMO OP you should look into a 95-96 250sx. 5k will give you some nice headroom to get a quality example. Is this going to be your daily driver? What state do you live in?
