Can you use foil tape on exhaust?
Don't be stingy with the foil. Wrap a few turns around the repair, then wrap wire tightly around the foil to hold it in place. Even better, after you've put on the first layer of foil, is to wrap on a layer of exhaust system repair tape, which adds some thickness to the repair, helping reduce noise.
