Hole at the topside of Catalytic Converter - Air leak in Bank 2

Shop told me today that I have a hole in my drivers side Catalytic converter. They gave me two options to repair. Either take the Cat down and weld it or place a clamp on it to seal it. I believe places a clamp on it is a little cheaper. Which would you all recommend?

Year? Model? THis may be covered under the extended cat warranty or even standard warranty depending on your rig's age.

Can anyone answer my question about the Cat? Trying to decide what to do here. Thanks all.

If you plan on keeping the RR I would recommend you get it welded. They usually crack on the seam. If it is a hole due to corrosion get a new cat.

If it is on the main body of the cat, a clamp might be OK. Typically the defective ones fail right at the edge on the weld where it would be pretty difficult to place any type of clamp. If it isn't right on the weld, then it probably wouldn't be covered by the defective weld warranty. Also, I think you might be past the mileage for that anyway.
