    Mysterious Bracket

    Hey guys my first real post. So I replaced the clutch a week or two and after the long process I got done late and was reassembling in the early morning. Woke up the next day sitting beside my heat shields was a sheet metal bracket. Can anyone help my dumbass identify it?

    That's what I was thinking. Possibly going around down pipe? I just don't remember it the last time I through on the turbo heat shield. Just from looking at top of the engine bay I could see exactly how it bolted up. I am about to tear in to it in a few hours so maybe once I get inter cooler off again it will make sense.

    Think you may have put it on backwards...... I can't recall which way it went, from my back to stock journey, but the pic kedonot1 put up, yours is backwards.
