What to do with old manifold?

I want to buy the wind star intake for the 99-04 mustang but I don't know what I would do with the left over parts. What do i do with them? I don't think I could sell a manifold from a mustang v6.

You can sell anything if the price is right. You can always keep em. What if new one breaks. Atleast you'd have a backup in case you couldn't get a new one for coup weeks.
Just a thought

Eventually there will be a need, whether from a restorer or someone who broke theirs and needs a replacement. The question is, do you have room to store it until it is sold?
If not then your best bet is to advertise it for sale really cheap, free, or scrap it.

I know the junkyards have 10 or so wind star manifolds so its not hard to get a new one. I'm not sure if I should port the stock one or get the wind star

Unless you do a cut and weld port job on the factory intake it really doesn't compare to Windstar

Store It

I replaced the standard suspension system with the Ford Racing Handling Package. Since the old parts had only 744 miles on them.

Someone may need some standard parts and can't afford new ones.
