Default Mysterious Heat Shield

Good afternoon all,
I replaced my entire exhaust system (cat, resonator, muffler, but didn't replace manifold) and noticed the heat shield below was broken, which explained where a rattle was coming from.

I cannot locate the part for the life of me nor can even find this heat shield listed in any parts explosions. I've scoured the internet with no luck for a couple of weeks now. It is not the shield covering the manifold, but its the one immediately following that one. It's where the catalytic converter bolts to the manifold, as I had to remove subject shield to bolt the new cat to the manifold.

2003 Saturn Ion 1, 300k miles

Thanks in advance for any direction provided...but I'm stumped!

Awesome....AWESOME!!

Thanks a lot! I felt it was little more beefy than a normal heat shield...so a CV boot joint shield makes sense.

Thanks again!!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
