409 or 304? Stick a magnet to it. If it's magnetic it's 409 and can be MIG welded like mild steel. Most "stainless" exhaust stuff is 409.

If you need it welded, let me know. Only thing is I don't have my welder setup right now and I'm leaving state for a couple weeks so it'd have to be then.

If it's a header that is cracked, welding it will probably lead to it cracking again, though it'll buy you some time (been there, done that)
