Default Unknown Bracket after timing belt / head job

I have been working on a 2005 PT Cruiser 2.4L turbo for many months now, removing the head and doing timing belt after the car began smoking like mad. I have finally got the car back together and started. I drove around a little, everything was fine, but a quick look in the garage and I realized that I had an extra bracket that used to be in the car. I would love it if someone could identify what this is; I would like to put it back in its place.

It has the numbers:

0 4884512 AAC


VRW 226 1 42254

My buddies at Google didn't find anything

Here are some pictures of the part:

Thank you much for your help:

Default Re: Unknown Bracket after timing belt / head job can you forget to put that bracket?
Anyways, that's the bracket that holds the back of the intake manifold. It goes behind the ignition coil, bolted to the head. Two bolts in the head and two bolts in the manifold
Just look at the bright side: you gained a .02 seconds at the track because of the reduced weight..LOL

If you need it, I can get you a picture, already mounted, tomorrow morning....

And don't drive it until you put it!!!

When I change my plugs, I usually loosen that top bolt on that bracket so that I can move the intake around a bit. Just before going to Florida, I replaced my plugs and good thing - the shop that did the rebuild after my wreck left that bolt out! Silly boys!

Glad Xtrm jumped on so fast!!!

Yep recognize that bracket. Changed my plugs out this weekend myself and the plugs in there were autolite platiums. damn. And one bolt on that bracket wasn't tighten down. Make sure if you have a shop do your plugs and wires that you know what they are installing in your car. Installed granetelli wires and ngk iridiums, what a difference
