What parts should I start replacing on a '96 Mustang, Manual, with 200,000+ miles???

I need to know the most critical parts that will need replacing in my car because it Is getting up there on mileage. I drive it pretty aggressively and I have No clue how the previous owners drove it. I had to fix the clutch quadrant because it broke and that was crap because noone ever sells Just the quadrant. so i bought the whole clutch kit. Anyways, I plan on replacing almost everything on the Mustang So it will be All on me with what parts break and not. and I will be keeping it for a Long time so.. thats also a reason. I'd rather deal with unbroken parts now, instead of dealing with them when Im stranded somewhere... ya know?

Have you done the obvious stuff? Plugs, wires, tranny fluid, rear end fluid, fuel filter, check brakes and suspension? If not check all that.

As things go bad just replace them with aftermarket upgrades. Sounds like youve started that way already. With 200k preventative maintenance kinda goes out the window other than fluid changes.

Battery is first, alternator, suspension fuelpump, lights front and back, all fluid change including the rearend, tension pulley and idler pulley defineately the serpentine belt( recommend every 50k) cataletic conference and off course o2 sensors or clean them out really good. Coil plugs all 8, and fuel injectors But! The sensors and relays are the biggest worry. Go find your make and model at the bone yard and start grabbing them including the temp sensor. And a full gasket kit including head gaskets.
