JB weld cant handle the heat. It will crumble apart. Take it to a welding shop, they should be able to do the cast iron.

thanks for the info. I had a funny feeling it wouldn't work so I searched ebay and found another rear EFI exhaust and did a "BUY It NOW".

got the passenger side boxing plate for the frame semi-completed and ruffed in...I've got some ideas I have to research before I weld it in place.I need accessibility behind the plate,so I'm going to search for some cool ideas.....
