well it is a 17 year old car the pain is actualy ok it has some dent on it and runs good but i just feel like if i play around with it its gonna f-up on me just because of the miles on it or im wrong to feel like that?

Well, I would recommend lots of maintenance and care before worrying about modding the car. A car with those miles, you can either have some fun and beat it into the ground within a year, or you can baby it and restore it to looking and behaving nicely for at least a few more years. It's up to what you want out of the car.

I say, Do the maintenance on it (timing belt, water pump, seals, clutch, all ignition parts, etc...

It the motor doesn't burn oil, you can probably do the work on it and it will run for several more years to come. The 5sfe is a pretty robust motor.

Definitely do the maintenance before you start modding too much.

If the body is good, I say definitely fix it up!!

.......or, just get another 5sfe from the junkyard with less miles and there you go...:).
5sfe's are relatively cheap, and they are a dime a dozen.
