You will definitely be able to resell parts. You will likely get at least 50% back on this forum... if not more. This of course depends on condition. Check the for sale section. M perf exhaust resells used for well over $2K.
If the parts need to be returned with the car then I suggest not rolling them into the lease. You should buy them seperately so that you can swap them out later. Otherwise you are losing about $4K of possible resale. That is a lot of money.
