Broke off my car, which part is which?

Went to track. Heard something dragging under my car. Saw it, jacked up my car and took it off. Im pretty sure its the O2 sensor. Gotta distinguish which part is from my exhaust and which part is the O2 sensor and if I can just mount it back on my exhaust.
Sorry for posting this so late Ben.
I broke the tread right off in the second pic but if I remove the O2 sensor from the bung extender it should just screw into the exhaust correct?
Do I have it right in the third pic? if so, thats what ive been trying to unscrew, but its not coming off. grr.

It is your exhaust oxygen sensor.It looks like it took the exhaust bung with it.Do you have a aftermarket x pipe because that sure does not look like factory.

Yea I have an akra evo with bung extenders.
Wondering if I need any new part because of this or can I just mount the sensor to my exhaust. I have no need for the bung extender, I just never removed it when I installed it.

Just get the bung welded back in.A competent shop should be able to handle that.I used to have that problem with my 86 5.0 Mustang in the 80's at the track.Sounds lovely when it happened and always lost a few hundred RPM.

So I finally got them separated after some serious wd40. Can I just attach it to my exhaust Ben?

The sphincter broke loose from the bung hole. Make sure a muffler shop can weld titanium beforehand.

Figured if everythings still intact and I can separate them then it would be easier. And I always thought it was difficult to weld titanium. Thanks for the advice.

Then you need somebody who can work with titanium.Good luck but the avaition world or racing would be good places to start looking for someone who could weld this.
