Good job mate and removing them was a good call too. Once they are loose that's it, fault will get worst much quicker.

I hear what you are saying about the injector connectors bracket, but it's impossible what you have done on the car which never had manifold out due to the wiring loom just before the connectors being fixed to the front of the engine block leaving you with no play on the manifold. Most likely guys who took it out didn't bother to reassemble it properly

Well done
