I think if I didn't have the plate, I would make one. It's just a piece of aluminum, a few holes and hose connectors, pretty straight forward. The only complication there is the welded PCV pipe, but I ended up not using it after all.
You might want to add a little longer hose so that when the engine rocks on its mounts there will be sufficient slack in the hoses to accommodate the stretch.

I believe the engine rotates clockwise, when generating torque, as seen from the driver's position.
