    Yikes! That is a mes. You'll need to clean all the gunk off the pipe and then attempt to re-weld it. Are you removing the AIR system? And what is all the gunk anyway?

    for now if you aren't planning on reinstalling the AIR system try and clean it up and have it welded shut, thats nasty looking

    Grind it down and break the welder out, no big deal.

    This happens to alot of headers with air fittings. Had the EGR pipe break off my header last year so I cut off the air pipe on that side and patched them both up. Personally, I'd swap those rusty old things.
