B&B Headers Leaking

Hey guys,

Well I finally got the oil issues taken care of (for the most part) so now its on to other areas... Spending so much time under the car, I noticed that there is an exhaust leak in my headers (the red highlighted area in the photo) and I am looking for ideas on how to fix it. Would it be best to have this welded up? Is there a reason it wasn't welded from B&B (I assume to ease shipping difficulties??) and is there a reason not to weld this? I'm willing to bet that I'm losing a good bit of HP from this exhaust leak and it is probably why the car doesn't build boost as quickly as I thought it should. Thanks - Jon
