Alright, so if you didn't catch it in the Intro section, my sister just got her first car! Check out the post for pics.
The car has 212K on the odometer, which is broken, and has been sitting for at least a year. This is going to be her daily driver so we need it to be dependable. What would be a good idea to change out/upgrade?
Starts, but slowly, so I think it's time for some ignition work.
Radiator hoses are cracked/dry rotted. The coolant overflow tank, well, let's just say a good flush is in order.
The thermostat housing/water neck is completely corroded.
Complete Oil Change
Radiator Flush w/ fresh Fluid
New spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor.
Here's somewhat of a shopping list I have compiled:
1987-95 Mustang 5.0L Economy Ignition Tune-Up Kit by Taylor at LRS - Same Day Shipping!
Cooling and Heating:
1994-95 Mustang 5.0L Radiator Hose Kit, Includes Clamps by 50resto at LRS - Same Day Shipping!
Duralast/Thermostat (15359) | 1994 Ford Mustang 8 Cylinders T 5.0L SFI HO | AutoZone.com
Compressor Works/Water Outlet (814884) | 1994 Ford Mustang 8 Cylinders T 5.0L SFI HO | AutoZone.com
and then tires.
Is this a pretty good list?
All of this together is over my budget, but I'll pitch in if it's necessary.
What do you guys think? Should anything else be added to this list?

Oh! and we found out last night the car already has a K&N Air Filter!
My brother contributed to the effort by supplying his K&N Recharge/Cleaning Kit.
