Exhaust Part Identification

The weather has finally improved in Texas, and after fixing a bunch of broken pipes had some time to spend with the car. In some ways, I'm still trying to figure out what I bought and I saw something I don't recall seeing before. So there is this round cylinder that says Ford Racing on it that is between the exhaust manifold and the Accufab (or what I think is an Accufab) exhaust. Between this cylinder and the triangular exhaust flange is what I guess is the O2 sensor.

Any ideas what this is? Thanks

Cat delete pipe from Ford Racing.
Hard to tell who made that xpipe but I don't think that is Accufab given the presence of the partially visualized tips on the exhaust. Accufab did not have tips...its probably GTG?


That thing is loud!

Huh......didn't expect that answer on either count.

So I'm not going to say it's loud, but I had to stop driving near cemeteries.

Still hope to catch a ride in your NFGT when Covid finally lets up.

After a search, yes I agree on the cat delete pipe...not sure if I want to keep that long term. Still have no idea what exhaust I have though.

Comparing to my GTG exhaust, I don't think it is GTG. Rich's is more of a true X.

As others have said quite correctly;

1. The Ford Racing large cylinders are the Cat Delete pipes (with those labeled resonators).
2. The exhaust is neither a Accufab or Heffner - looks more like a one-off
3. The OEM exhaust expansion "strap" has been irreversibly modified yet retained for this application
4. The black OEM supporting plate at the back of the transaxle has been replaced with what looks like some concoction of billet aluminum pieces

OK, thanks for the input everyone. I'll keep this setup for the time being, as I have higher priority things on the horizon. It does sound good though so there is that.

Agree.
Definitely not Heffner!
Best,
