It's only money. I wouldn't dwell on it.

Car is paid for at this point. Sitting in the garage, covered up. I've got about 8 weeks left and I'll be able to see if my purchase was worth it. I've been browsing, but have yet to find anything else within 250 miles that I like.

You're right, it's not a big deal. I'm sure it will work out in the end.

Anyway, anyone recommend any more upgrades when I get back? I was looking at getting the Accel plug kit and new spark plugs, change the oil just in case, throttle body? Idk what else I could do besides intercooler.
I don't like the rims. I'd rather have black rims or maybe gold/bronze.

No accel cops! Too many premature failures. If you must get aftermarket coil packs, get msd coils. They have the fewest failures that i've seen. I had accel coils and 1 or more failed with no warning and no CEL. I've been using msd for over a year now and so far so good. The engine runs smoother with the aftermarket cops, smoother acceleration, smoother idle, that's why I punish myself by using them. They may make more power on a supercharged motor.

I'd do the intercooler before anything else.

For those of y'all that doubted me, I would just like to update and say that I have put over 10,000 miles on this beast and there are ZERO issues.

Unfortunately, being a full time student and travelling A LOT has its downsides. So most of those are easy highway miles. I need something that gets 40-50 mpg. Lol
I do not want to let this go.
I get 26 MPG at 55mph on the highway. Again though, I think this car deserves someone who will REALLY drive it. It's too fast for me.

So you're happy with it, but going to sell it?

It sucks but yes. I need to concentrate on school and maybe one day when I am more financially stable I can get back into mustangs.
