    no glue or epoxy can take that. at least not the kind of crap you can buy over the counter. It's not that hard to weld.

    JB weld is the only thing i can think of that will take that heat. Just amek sure you give it plenty of time to cure.

    One time my EGR pipe broke off from my EM (89 prelude).
    JB weld will not hold it, it melts off like butter.
    I did find a silver almost concrete looking material in a tube at AutoZone by the exhaust repair kits, the more heat it takes, the harder it gets, it worked really well actually.

    JB Weld cured my grandma's cancer. It saved the 101st airborne during WWII. And it tastes great on toast. :blink:

    That stuffs good for everything BUT high heat stuff, although I have heard of people using it to seal cracked engine blocks. Dunno if that's true though. I used it to fix my compound miter saw. Kicked ass.
