Exhaust Wrap Poor mans fix..Possible?

Just wanted some opinions on this. I have a crack in my exhaust manifold. I'm wondering if it would be possible to wrap the crack in exhaust wrap until i can either weld or replace it. Any thoughts?

also i did some looking and am thinking about this combo. High heat cement + header/exhaust wrap. total is about $15.00 compared to $70ish i'm seeing for a new exhaust manifold.

Never seen header wrap that lasted very long. Have to re-wrap often & I don't think you could actually get it to stay where needed on a stock manifold. I have wrapped tubular headers and I mean TIGHT, but after a few passes they always loosened up somewhere before the collector.

Might put a wanted post up here and some of the more traveled zuk boards and get a manifold for free/cheap before you go messing with cement & wrap.

you forgot zookpower.ca

If you plan on welding in the future don't bother putting anything on it that will be a biatch to take off. Just weld it NOW!!
