Default Weld snap please help! First thread

I have a used 2012 wrx currently at 70k and after purchasing went to stage 1 (cobb sf). Went under the car today for inspection and found out the weld connecting the turbo housing to the down pipe is completely detached due to a terrible weld by the manufacturer. My question is will I have to replace or can i reweld the parts together. I'm broke and drive 70 miles a day for work. Looking for the cheaper and faster options but please give it to me straight. thank you!

Default maybe

a good welder can prolly weld almost anything, but you need enough room to get at it. not knowing how tight things are i would look into a good welding shop for their opinion + if removal is necessary that adds to the cost for sure unless you can DIY it, good luck!!!

Take it to an exhaust shop or a welder, not the dealership.

Better yet, sell it and get an economy car.

Commuting 70 miles daily in a modified performance car that you can barely afford is not going to end well.

A failed weld barely scratches the surface on what can go wrong with a car like this.

Seriously reconsider your priorities.
