I recently installed an acrapovic exhaust and it moved and started melting… oops… do I need this black piece or can I just take it off… thanks a bunch!

That's the charcoal canister which reduces pollution. If there isn't a big hole in it I would just move it away from the exhaust so it stops melting.

You will need it to meet emissions requirements depending on the laws in your area. You were supposed to re-mount it slightly more to the right as plastic touching or even near headers is a no no.

Some people (including me) remove the whole system and use a block off plate to close the system off. Here's some instructions on how to do this. It will run just fine after this (albeit worse for the environment).
