5.4 Motor Mount Bracket

2008 F350 5.4l
While I was removing the passenger side exhaust manifold I stupidly notched out the sheet metal on the engine mount bracket to fit my stud remover onto the bottom of #3 port.
Is that a structural piece or a heat shield for the mount?
I know I messed up but just need to know if I should replace it now while the manifold is out.

Sure looks like a heat shield to me.
