Default Intake manifold brackets needed?

Forgot how/where these guys go, but it doesn’t seem like they are critical, as the manifold seems pretty secure without them. Although the black one is pretty hefty.

The larger black bracket fits on the passenger's side back two intake manifold bolts. The raised tab will fit over the back edge of the right fuel rail.

It's a grounding strap for your fuel rail

The large one has the small tab that curves over the top of the back side of the fuel rail. Its supposed to stop the fuel rail from popping off in the event of an accident so gas doesn't pump all over your hot engine. I reinstalled mine.

The little one is a ground strap that should definitely be put back on. If you changed your fuel rails to aftermarket aluminum ones, you should get one for the other side
