I was watching a video of someone with a 7M/R154 and noticed they had a part that I didn't recognize. Looked at the parts diagram and they are "stiffener plates". 33118 in the first pic below.
I took a look under my car where they should be and I don't have them on my 1JZ/R154 swap.

I took a look at my 7M-GE on the stand and sure enough, there are these 2 plates on the engine and they would bolt onto the trans.

So my questions are
1) Do I need stiffener plates for a 1JZ/R154? Mine is a VVTi so originally out of a Chaser. I tried to look at pics online at the JDM importer website to see how they look, and it doesn't appear so...But I want to be extra sure...
2) in relation to above....Are these plates needed for extra stability/security since these are heavy engines?
3) Do I need the clutch housing cover? (the half moon shaped flat piece) I don't have one installed in my swap. I do have 1 of the 2 inspection covers which I will be fixing but I don't have the half moon looking piece at all or the one that came with my old setup doesn't fit.

The housing cover on JZ's go on the engine side of the bellhousing. They're all rubber and shaped differently. I recently ordered mine from a dealership. I suggest having one to prevent debris from getting into your clutch housing.
