I would be concerned with a crack that large that welding it would weaken the whole rest of the tower that is probably already weakened. This is probably why the car would be totaled. Short of...

I wouldn't say that it's a rumble, but it's better than stock. And you drop about 40 lbs of weight with removing the muffler. Look on YouTube for some videos, I think they are titled muffler delete...
