I want to mount an ext3 filesystem with no caching at all, most importantly no write caches since I want everything to be flushed to disk right away. Can anyone share the needed flags for such a functionality, I am having trouble finding this at the man pages.

mount -o sync -t ext3 /dev/sda1 /mnt

assuming the device is /dev/sda1 and the mount point is /mnt.
