Akrapovic titanium exhaust cracked

Has anyone else encountered this problem? My akra muffler has cracked all the way around.
This sucks since its titanium and I've never welded it before...

Look it up on the net. Talk to Welders in your area shouldn't be a problem maybe one would tell the setup to weld it.

Know

Let us know what you did to weld it? And later how it holes up. With some metals it's better to let them cool slow and others cool them down fast? I don't know.

Cleaned it thoroughly, put the TIG on approx. 25 amps and had rootgas flowing so that the inside got shielded too.

The weld procedure was quite standard, I went over it fast so that it didnt get too hot and then had aftergas for like 5 seconds.

Seems like it is staying welded so far atleast!

Edit: I actually put some more metal in there yesterday to make it a bit more stable, the original weld is VERY badly done.
