Default Bought a '06 supercharged mustang. Questions

Normally, I would never think about buying a used car with a supercharger, but this thing looks CLEAN. Now keep in mind, I'm still deployed overseas. I had my dad go look at it and get it for me. He knows his way around cars and I would trust me with anything.
Anyway, here are the details on the car:

2006 Mustang GT w/ 74k miles
Previous owner bought from dealership and drove it for 3 months
He also purchased a 2 year aftermarket warranty, so there's 21 months left on it
Interior is extremely clean
Was told that the engine was stroked to 5.0L and that it had forged internals. No paperwork

Here's what it has:
Vortech V2 supercharger
Snow Performance Method. Injection
Diablo MAFia MAF tuner
3.73 gears
O/R Xpipe
Magnaflow exhaust
SCT tuner
Pillar-mounted boost, wideband gauges
Steeda 18" chrome wheels with Nitto 555's
Steeda lowering springs
Backup camera

And rewired audio:
2 12" stubs (haven't asked what brand...didn't care)
7" touchscreen head unit

He says it pushes 450rwhp at 14 p.s.i.
The main reason I got it is because of the warranty. Can't go wrong right?
Just wondering what are some things to check for? I won't be home for a couple months, but would like to get a list started.
Change spark plugs, oil, trans. fluid? What else should I do?
And I also think there's more to the car than what the guy knew of.
What should I look for?
