Fix my exhaust leak
 
Just looking for a temporary way to close up the opening on my exhaust.

My titanium steel headers have a slightly smaller piping then the rest of my exhaust. it was clamped together but I am getting that raspy noise coming from where it was clamped.

What can I use to patch up that slight opening? I was told that JB weld would do the job. I cant stand driving on this for a whole week till I get it welded professionally.
How hot does the exhaust get? JB weld can withstand up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit.

Spend the $30-50 to have it welded.

Any patch you put in place is only going to get in the way of welding it. If you truly can get to welding it in a week, don't worry about it.
