Default Help: No coolant in my 2005 s281 SC

Hello, I am a new owner to a 2005 mustang saleen sc. I bought this car a week ago and while I don't drive it crazy, every time I got on the car I noticed it didn't feel like the 400 hp this car should be producing. I did a inspection on the car and I come to find intercooler resivor was empty. I went to AutoZone and bought sone 50/50 coolant and when I filled the tank back up it went straight to the floor out my intercooler. Now I plan on getting the bigger afco intercooler and a new pump and relay. Im not sure how long this previous owner drove it like this and I'm worried it caused damage. He has no idea when it happened. Also, when I get it fixed will my power come back? I heard the car restricts the timing when it runs hot. Anyone who knows a lot about these saleen sc please help.

Also, this car was originally a non sc saleen and the previous owner sc it as soon as he bought it off the lot so it doesn't have the boost gauge or air temp. I plan on buying the saleen one if I can find one

The Saleen SC are a little loud to begin with but how does it sound? You can pull the belt and make sure the SC turns smoothly. If it does I'd proceed with checking all of the coolant lines and fix the issue/s. I have a Ford dual pass Heat exchanger from a 2013 GT 500 for sale $315. I'm running a triple pass Steeda with a 2013 GT500 intercooler pump. Good luck the car should run better once you address the issue. Another mod I'd suggest is upgrading to a bigger coolant tank. The stock Saleen unit is rather small and more coolant is better especially if you are upgrading the HE and pump.
