Exhaust leak at pipe and manifold connection

(1990 Ford F-150)
my 1988 f-150 PU. failed inspection due to an exhaust leak at the manifold pipe connection. would it be right to cut the pipe get a new piece and add a donut gasket,or squeeze in epoxy to seal the leak. this is the only thing stopping me from a valid inspection. ( nothing else wrong ) granted in the future the manifold will have to be changed. thank you.

check the pipe side and the exhaust studs for rot, if it's rotton you can replace it all. another thing to watch for on those trucks is a crack in the manifold. they can be tricky to find.

I don't know bout VA but in MD if the vehicle has historic tags and is over 20 years old, you don't need to have an inspection or emissions done. This is the case with mine.
