Best way to plug exhaust leaks .... even if it only lasts a day ?

basicly have a cracked manifold on a turbocharged car, and theresno way to fix it without pulling out a very large amount of exhaust pipes, which itself takes over an hour

any suggestions on cheap / easy ways to keep the exhaust on the RIGHT side of the pipe ?

the exhaust was built using mild steel, and it broke WAY sooner then we ever expected, and it was driven way harder then expected (alex didnt expect this many people would want to grudge match him)

i just want a temp way to seal those gaps untill we can rebuild them out of stainless

Get your self down to your favorite auto parts store and get some JB STICK. It is a 2 part epoxy that so far has lasted 2 years on my head to header leak. Bolt broke off and so did the easy out.

It recommends you use some water during the kneading process, and I highly endorse that. Make sure and clean the pipes with some NON-FLAMMABLE brake cleaner. You can layer it up too.
