Next was fabbing up a bracket, using the trademark Simpson tie, from the Depot. I like this stuff for the light duty mounting of various crap, it's worked well in several applications. fairly easy to bend in a vice with a hammer, thick enough so it's pretty tough to bend by hand, yet thin enough that you can slam holes through it with a cordless drill & one end pinched in the vice. That's about my speed, and recipe for a great evening in the garage.

I created 2 new holes, both with the bolts in them in the picture below. The mounting points aren't completely perpendicular to the engine, so this was so the bracket plane would tilt back and sit completely parallel with the manifold sheild, and also prevents the bracket from twisting should one of the bolts come loose.
