1993 Civic Hatchback Swap.....help

Hi everyone, I'm not so new to this board... but it is my first time posting here...reason is because I now have a Civic.

I have a 93 Civic hatch, which I bought for real cheap from a relative. It's an automatic, and the only body damage is the rusting from the quarter panels, everything else seems to be in great condition. So since I purchased this car for almost next to nothing...and because of it's good condition, I want to swap in something else...
So now I'm wondering what the best swap would be for this...
and yes I want it to be a standard transmission...so would it be worth it?
I mean I bought the car for dirt cheap...so why not right?

Please give me some suggestions...on what I should do...
people have suggested K20...but I don't have that much to spend..
but like something around the 5k and under range...

Thanks
