Welding Question

I got really sick of the wastegate not making any loud noises when it opened. So, last weekend I unbolted the wastegate muffler and went for a drive to see if i could tell a difference... wow, fell in love immediately. To rectify the situation I cut open the wastegate muffler and cut out the baffle that was on the inside. I am now in the process of welding the can back together. I am new to this world of welding but I have been doing my practice exercises like a good apprentice. My biggest question at this point is whether or not I need a shielding gas or if flux cored wire is sufficient? The can appears to be some type of stainless steel but I am not really sure if the gas bottle is a must. I know there are some serious welders out here in 930 world... thanks in advance for the advice.
