Cracked exhaust header

I was looking over my sled and noticed that header is cracked half way around where it meets the Y-pipe. The exhaust springs hold it tight against the y-pipe. My question is, can i weld the crack or is the steal too thin and would i possibly make the crack worse?

I would say in my thoughts, as long as your heat and write speed is good you'll fix it fine by weld. My two cents. But I've done weld repair to many an exhaust like that.
