It's not available separately. It's part of the wire harness, which has been discontinued by Toyota. You'll have to find a used one.

Maybe check the wreckers for any 3S powered cars from that era, one of them might use the same piece

They don't. I checked. 3S-GTE MR2 had the alternator in a completely different spot. 3S-FE/GE Celicas and Camrys don't have the wires routed quite the same in that area.

Once you do find one, you may want to fabricate a bracket for the lower mounting bolt if you have an aftermarket downpipe. The stock downpipe has a stay with a bolt hole for the wire harness mounting bolt. On my car, this was loose and caused the issues with the alternator belt rubbing on the wire harness.

Yes, you want something there to hold the harness away from the belt.
I cut off the end of the stock bracket and used it.
