it will burn off. stink for a while then just crust and come off. I tried it already LOL. They do make a high temp exhaust patch. That did work but ended up cracking off over time. Welding is the only permanent fix.

they have exhaust putty at the local parts stores down the exhaust pipe isle. I used it a long time ago when I had the 4.2. The connection from the exhaust manifold to the down pipe always leaked so I used it there with good results.

Used the putty this way before with results that lasted a very long time. Should be in the exhaust isle? Or you can drive out to Fenton, and I will weld it for free ???

Is that until it blew up?:nana:

I wouldn't bother fixing it, just buy a big tube of JB weld and form your own manifolds out of it. :beerbang:
