SVTF cat bracket

Hey Andy,

Finally getting around to fixing my rattle. Got under the car yesterday (2003 SVTF) and confirmed that I do have a crack in the cat bracket, but it's not in the upper bracket that most people have reported (4M5Z-5A204-A). Rather, it's in the smaller part that goes around the other side of the cat, opposite the upper bracket. The crack is right near the bolt, pointed out in the attached photo in orange. Far as I can tell, both the upper (cat side) and lower (engine side) brackets aren't cracked... yet.

Can I get just the smaller piece opposite the upper bracket?

Also, out of curiosity... how much for a replacement SVTF exhaust header heat shield? While I was under the car looking at the cat bracket, I realized that both of the lower header heat shield bolts are missing, and the shield has rusted out around three of the four bolts up top on the primaries. I took one of the top bolts out (wasn't doing anything anyway!) and put it down bottom for the time being, but long-term I'm either going to replace the heat shield or just remove it and wrap the headers instead.
