I replaced the leaking Power Steering hose I had the other day. After I was done, with the hood open, I started it up and let it idle.

Holy crap does that air filter flop around.

I'd say the air filter bracket is broken. ;)

So, here's the question. Should I buy a replacement bracket, or should I fab something up that mounts the air filter to non-engine mount points so that it doesn't get tossed about and let the flexible hose that goes from air filter to engine suck up the vibrations? Or will that cause that hose to fail in short order?

I just think it was silly to mount the air filter to the engine anyway. :)
