This is right up against the engine. Vibrations are going to break a J-B Weld in days. Regular weld the last longer, but it's not going to last. Buy the Doorman and get it overwith. I like how you can separate the Catalyst from the manifold itself, something Honda should have done originally. I also imagine that the Doorman is lightweight compared to the cast iron OEM model. Care to weigh them both and see what the relative weights are?

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
