Default Correct Resonator Delete? Help

I'm going to buy a Resonator delete pipe for my 2012 5.0 RCSB 2wd.
Is this the correct Part Number : 9L3Z-5A212-A ?

Mainly asking as I know some of you have done the swap, and it's not a part number listed for a my truck, more 09', 10' 4.6 & 5.4, but Steve at Tasca believes it's a straight up swap for my application.

Anybody used this pipe on their truck?

Anyone...?Anyone...?

Thanks in advance for the info.

And here's my resonator delete. A lot cheaper, not sure if this is the "correct" one...

Sorry if I missed something, but what is the advantage of the Res. Delete?

If you like internal resonance, delete the resonator. It reduces internal resonance, sometimes described as "drone" by those who don't like it.

the resonator delete option DOES NOT WORK for RCSB trucks.
been there, done that.
on 2011+ trucks the RCSB cat back is shorter than other wheelbase trucks, and the resonator pipe is oddly longer. I ended up buying a 133" delete and it was still too short. I ended up having to add a small section of pipe to the end of the 133" pipe to make it fit.

if you check out the thread linked above and go to post #61 you will see my comment referencing this. from there on through the next 30 posts you will see how my experience panned out as well as pics I took of what each pipe I tried looked like.
