keep a close watch on that.. Exhaust pipe temp can get pretty close if not over the operating temp of silicon.

I tell you what though, the noise,vibration and harshness level has dropped significantly. Very pleased with the result so far.
Yes, the holes I filled would ideally be air cooling vents for the rattlers with seized nuts n bolts. Might not have used my noggin totally in the approach. I did see some pale smoke drift out while stopped at traffic lights after , but at least no flippin' rattle

Seems like it's not going to burst into flame, but it might smoulder until enough of it is gone.

Ultra copper will work as it's high temp, but as Dave said. lose the heat shield altogether.

I always tap around the heat shields to find the offending section, then grab the ears where they're bolted together with a pair of channel-locks, and bend them down, kind of half folding/dimpling the sides. Puts enough tension back in it to shut em up.

For GL10 cross pipes that rattle, you remove the middle of three sections that occur on the engine right end of the cross pipe. Subaru does not make cross pipes anymore. If the cross pipe has cracked at the turbo connection, about 3/4" down from the exit flange, you disassemble the heat shield around that connection, reweld the crack all around, and then reinstall the heat shield section. Otherwise, that crack will leak and make a lot of noise if you don't fix it.
