Buy a Trackforged turbo kit and save up for fuel pump, ems, injectors, and clutch!

it depends on your intended use. There are many good ways to spend $5k, but only knowing your intentions can help us lead you down the right path.

By a LS1 and do a v8 swap sell the good motor and trans and use it to buy the rest of the parts you will need. 350+ hp NA and 350+ ftlbs. And not blow shit up and have to spend another $5000.

Drop it off at a tuning place and have a professional install a BEAST turbo setup.

My used high boost supercharger kit that will be tuned on a kpro cost me ~5k in parts. Just have to install everything and get it tuned now. I'll be shooting for 380-400whp.

I'd call Ankeney racing and order some Penske shocks and mate them to the springs that would work well with the the desired application and valving. Sway bars and then whatever it takes to get the alignment sorted would be next.

Then I'd stuff the widest set of wheels and sticky tires I could make fit on the car.

If you're going racing read the rule books first, digest and re-read. At a minimum I'd then go autocross the car.

I figure if I wanted a ton more power and something that handles better I'd sell the S and buy a 9 year old corvette z06 but for now I dig the slightly smaller size.

I see lots of people upgrade front sway bars or recommend it, but I'm not sure why? Body roll can be countered in a bunch of different ways that I find more appealing (stiffer shocks etc) which don't reduce the benefits of independent suspension the way thicker sway bars do. Thicker sway bars also induce more understeer, especially on a staggered setup, which I absolutely hate. Right now my setup is awesome and I can induce oversteer in a very controllable manner on-demand or if I just push to the limits in a corner all 4 tires break away at the same time. Absolutely perfect neutral handling, my ideal situation. I hope when I go with stickier tires, that doesn't change, and my overall grip index just goes up.

As for the mods, like others have said, it depends on what you want to do. The s is has great everything from the factory, so you could focus on improvements from two sides: handling if you find power adequate or power if you find handling adequate.

Power Modding:
N/A setup:
Exhaust, intake, ECU, tune ~$3k

FI:
Supercharger kit with pre-tuned ECU ~$5k. I'd go super over turbo because they're more reliable and can actually be run on a track for long duration with no issues like overheating. They also have good base maps for most products so you don't need to bother with tuning.

Handling Mods:
wheels/tires/coilovers/sway bars (if you want the easier driving of understeer or if you go square tire setup)/corner balance/alignment

Wheels if you don't like the ap2v1's, Dunlop ZII, KWv3, J's 70rs Dual and a CT engineering intake. The last 2 are if you keep the stock wheels, otherwise you would be over budget.

If you wanted small and V8 then get a Miata. Flyin' Miata has been churning out everything required for a LS series V8 in a Miata for years - and you'd have about 300lbs less weight ;) Their current base engine is a 430hp LS3 and this can be combined with every part required to do the swap from engine mounts, headers, transmission, driveshaft and rear end inc new diff. They have a handling package too that's allow their cars to take FTD at a number of Autocross events.

If you have a nice S2000 and $5000, sell the S and see if you can buy an Elise :p

Elise is a sidegrade at best, and arguably a worse sidegrade oftentimes.
