if this is the piece I think it is, its off around the center of the underbody and is held in by 4 bolt, then its called the underbrace. You can even get an after market one from tanabe for like 80 bucks. It doesnt really do anything unless you're rally driving or something. Its good to have something there cause it braces the body better, but its not 100% necessary.

Id recommend not leaving it off for too long just in case, cause it might cause issues and if you got into an accident the frame would bend just a bit easier.

That is a structural brace. It ties together the 2 sides of the exhaust inset area. I'd either put it back or replace it. It also improves the handling and may be important in a side-impact wreck. The structural engineering is designed w/ it there. Without it, the vehicle structure is changed- how much so, I can't say.
