What part is this?

So as you can see the cover (left red circle) came off from the internal exhaust part (right circle). This part is between my 2 catalytic converters. I dont know the name of it or what it does. I cannot reattach this cover it just comes off. I dont know if it needs to be welded back on or what.

Any ideas?

Re: What part is this?

I'm thinking heat shield, too. Every car I've owned over the last 30 years has lost it, never bothered to replace it. Unless you're parking in high grass, it will not likely make a difference.

Where you been, girl, haven't seen a post from you in a while.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
