    Hi guys, i have a 2000 Mustang GT with a Vortech supercharger on it. I bought the car off of the original owner 6 months ago. He boosted it ten years ago. I also believe he beat the cap out of that motor. It has 108,000 miles and a slowing increasing drip with about 3-5 drops of oil. My question is do i keep her or sell her before it blows? Im 18 and spent every penny to my name on this car after dealing with a 99 V6 for a year. I'd hate to get ride of it but i cant afford a new motor if it blows. I should also add that i have quite a heavy foot as well and get on the gas quite often. So if you guys could please let me know what the smart thing to do would be, i really appreciate it.

    if you're concerned, do a compression and leakdown test
