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.

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.
