Depends on where it's cracked if it's loose around the bolts like mine was, it may help a little, but the crack might lead me to a new shield, or do what others have done, and wrap the header. I would like to do that, just for the ease of access to the lower hose, and PCV. But my cat bolts that go to the header are so rusted, I don't think I can get it off unless I go to a shop.
