Look like a bracket that your wiring harness would like into or something similar... Best I can do until I'm near my car tonight

looks like it could be the hook for the d shackle when you lift the engine out with an engine crane
there in two corners of the motor
one is at the back of the motor on the exhaust side above the heat shield
the other is at the front above the radiator hose
but I could be wrong?

I think that is a bracket that holds the power steering line to the sump

It can't be though cause it wouldn't have found its way up higher

It most likely could be as i just bought the car not long ago and the blokes pulled a bit apart all over it and its had an auto to manual conversion done. thanks for the replies i dont think its strong enough to be anything to lift the engine.

for sure it bolts to the sump on the drivers side towards the front of the engine and auto trans cooler lines bolt to it.
