If you have one its between the inlet manifold and cylinder head. If its fitted and you remove it you'll need to shorten the bolts.

I found it easier, rather than shortening bolts or packing with washers, to put a nut onto the bolts all the way before putting the bolt through the manifold and into the head. That takes up the extra length no problem.
