Perhaps the bracket for the DPFE sensor. It's the black bracket in the 2nd image, between the header and blue clutch. There's a lot of lines running around there when installed so maybe you thought pulling that out would give you room but abandoned it. You can see in the image it's missing 2 bolts and IIRC they're 10mm ish.
