This is just a guess but it looks like a bumper to me. That webbed part of the converter pipe is actually a flex pipe. It's designed to move with engine torque. That bumper is possibly there to prevent the pipe and converter assembly from banging into the underside of the car under certain conditions. HTH. -Jim
