At odds with the future of my stang

I've got an 05 GT I've got moderate mods on. 76,000 miles on it. $2800 left on it. Debating on selling it and getting 14+ or keeping it & going deeper in mods next year.

So far she's got JBA shorties, Pypes off-road H, SLP loudmouth, K&N "intake", hood struts, diy antenna delete, CDC chin spoiler, MMD duck tail spoiler, Gen 5 taillights, 20% tint all around with 5% sun strip, MGW shifter(love that thing), My Color gauge swap, Billet cup holder cover, 19" wheels from 2011 Mustang GT, KONI orange shocks/struts, SR lowering springs, BMR adjustable panhard bar, SCT X4 tuner, and I think that's it.

Possible mods for future include FRPP cams, 4:10 gears, cowl hood, Roush front/rear fascia, and leather interior.

Thoughts and advice on what y'all think I should do. I'd hate to see her go if I sold it.....but if I keep it, it would be nice to be free of the payment and I'd have her forever cuz I only put maybe 2500 miles on her a year.

One hand: Already modded car to your overall liking, and taking a step back in the same class with more horses/torque seems... odd. On the face of it. Especially if you'd wind up doing all those mods again to the newbie.

On the other: Styling, enhancements to interior, 5.0... I can see this allure.

Dunno. I think I'd just keep it and keep modding forward. Maybe find a 5.0 to stick in it...? If that's the big issue, that is. I'm not lookin' for one of those for Awesome, I'd wrap her around a tree playing with one of those in...

But that's me. You do you, and good dang luck with your decision!

Yeah I think I'll end up keeping it and just enjoy it. I was discouraged after watching a couple videos about frpp cams that ended up ruining a couple motors. But I hadn't heard anything negative until those videos. Not really looking to make massive power, just want the lope and gives me a reason to upgrade to 4:10's since upgrading to 3.73 wouldn't really be worth it

I'd really LOVE one of those coyote style plenum covers but they're so outrageously priced, I'll never justify it.
