Sprint muffler bracket

Could anyone give me some dimensions of the circled bracket that holds the front of the muffler up?

Hi Greg,
This is what I made for my S4 .. check the mounting bobbin hole centres match your car before drilling and position the muffler mounting bolt hole after trial fitting to maximise ground clearance without the pipe hitting the chassis. I also added an additional stiffener bracket between the muffler leg and the lower flange of the main bracket and a plate inside the boot to reinforce the bobbin mount area. Can't find my sketches for those at the moment though.
