Default What to do with old intake and exhaust?

2013 Ram 5.7 Hemi
I am upgrading my air intake system and my dual exhaust and would like to know what would you do with the old parts? Would you sell them, can you even make money off it? since the dealership seems to enforce they install or it can ruin your 5yr100k power train package? If it were a 5yr old vehicle this wouldn't even be a question, I would sell the old parts. But it is within the warranty and I am fairly certain other folks don't need it or want it that has such a new vehicle and also the question comes to mind, would it even fit or work on older models so would that narrow down the folks even if they wanted to buy it they can't cuz it won't fit or work with the older models??? Just wondering, what my abilities are to try and sell the parts, another question comes to mind if they are even re-usable? Maybe they are cut in such a way that they are need modifications to go in again?? I don't know these things and I DERN sure don't want to ask the dealership this question, I don't trust they wouldn't resell my stuff or keep it as an employee. Regardless, what would you do???

First off welcome to the forum, good color choice for a RAM.
I upgraded my intake with the Mopar and have been trying to sell it with no such luck.
If you are looking at doing a completely different exhaust setup (muffler back) there are some v6 RAM owners looking to upgrade to the factory dual setup. I just did a muffler and tips swap and almost had the muffler sold to a member with a v6 but he ended up getting everything for a good deal. I haven't tried selling the dual tips yet.
Hope this helps and good luck.

I doubt there are many people who would be interested in the stock intake.


Like Mopar Big Horn stated, the v6 owners like our dual exhaust. I sold mine for $150.00. I know it is a lot more expensive brand new, but I figure if it is just going to sit there anyways, might as well help someone out.

Same here until everything started taking up way to much space, so I started to sell everything.

Thank you for your replies!!! It helps me think it through. I think I will just put it up and see if I can sell it and if not, well, it will stay in the back yard in a pod. LOL Thanks again.
