That transaction selling the exhaust to the OP, wasn't valid.
And, OP should not contact the sponsor. The sponsor might ask for it back. OP did a value service outing this jackass and getting him banned. Unless he's sure the kid actually owned what he sold, he should probably lay low.
The OP said seller paid $1500 for it. They call it a partial sponsorship. It's most of what you see today very little do you see people get something totally free. I got one with my wheels.
