Possibly Buying a Mach 1! Things to look for?

Hey guys, going to check out an 03 Azure Blue Mach tomorrow.

It has 106,000 miles but is in extremely good condition from what I can tell...though pics are only 1/50th of the story.

So, are there any common things to look for specific to the n/a 4v or Mach 1?

From the pics it does have black valve covers (correct for 03 models) and the stock wheels.

It does have a Magnaflow catted x-pipe, borla stinger catback, K&N Intake, Ford Racing 4.10 gears and SCT tuner.

Some recent maintenance has been done to the car (the owner is a service manager at the Ford dealership), including the gears, pinion, seal, friction modifier, belt, plugs, tensioner, fuel filter, so I will pay special attention to those areas.

Any input/advice is appreciated.

I'm not an expert on Mach 1's but I would check the seals, as I recall those engines can develop bad seals.
